Excerpts from the Essay by Peter Frank in our Catalog TONY VACCARO: WAR, PEACE, BEAUTY

"His documentation of postwar life throughout Europe was as reverberant as his combat-zone work had been, and – recording as it does both momentous political occasions and everyday life in a continent reduced to rubble – as much of a contribution to history."

"No matter who they are, Vaccaro seems to empathize with the thoughts and spirits of his subjects, endowing his pictures with a doubled allure for the viewer: you wish you'd been there even as you feel you somehow had been."

"Only now, with a new television documentary and new exhibitions and publications, are the rest of us coming to recognize Tony Vaccaro, not just as one of many cameras in the crowd but as an artist, artisan, reporter and story-teller with his own style and spirit – and author of some of the quintessential images of the postwar era."

— Peter Frank
