“Recording History,” an exhibition of the photographs of veteran Washington photographer Dennis Brack, opened May 11 at Washington and Lee University, in the Williams Gallery of Huntley Hall on the W&L campus.
A 1962 graduate of Washington and Lee, Brack has chronicled 10 presidential administrations as well as the major news stories of the last five decades: civil rights, riots, wars, war protests, social issues and trends.
A member of Black Star photo agency, he has shot for the Washington Post and many other publications, including TIME and Newsweek magazines. One of the key features of the W&L exhibit will be a mosaic of his TIME and Newsweek covers.
He has won awards for his photography from the National Newspaper Photographers Association, the White House News Photographers Association and the World Press Association. He has served on the five-member board of the Still Photographers Gallery of the U.S. Senate and belongs to the executive committee of the White House News Photographers Association.
