Robert Freson: The Heyday of Photojournalism
"To Gil and Frontier,
I am very happy and grateful to have some of my photojournalist work exposed at Frontier.
I am honored to have been asked to exhibit a few photographs in the very pleasant
and bohemian atmosphere of the Gallery which graciously dedicates its space to local and international artists and movie makers.
We spent quite a lot of time together earlier this year selecting small segments of a great variety of assignments done all over the world. They were done over the last 60 years for Magazines such as LOOK, Vogue, Esquire, The Ladies Home Journal, National Geographic Magazine and books, etc. in the USA, The London Sunday Times and the Weekend Telegraphs magazines in England, Match and Marie-Claire in France, Stern in Germany, and Epoca in Italy.
My career, which covers mostly the last half of the 20th.Century, gave me the opportunity to witness some major events and to photograph many personalities.
I kept all the reproducing rights to an awful lot of photographs which are carefully stored and cataloged in my residence in Maine.
At the same time of this opening we are planning to have a screening of a "documentary" on some aspect of my career assembled in cooperation with Steve Phillips, a very good Maine videographer. I plan to be there to introduce it and be happy to answer any question.
The original purpose of this film was, and still is, to introduce myself to suitable institutions such as colleges, museums and/or other centers for archival photography which would be capable and willing to take the responsibility to preserve these documents.
Looking forward to this project.
