Photojournalist’s career is topic of talk

By From page A4 | July 17, 2014

“Once upon a time in New York — to be exact, in the ’50s and ’60s — a press pass was like a key to the city, to the world of politicians, Hollywood stars, American presidents, foreign heads of state and Mafia dons,” wrote Arty Pomerantz of the time that many consider the golden age of photojournalism.

Pomerantz retired to Lincoln, and wrote a book about his career before he died in 2012. His co-author on “Before the Paparazzi,” Steven P. Unger, will be on hand Saturday at the Pence Gallery to talk about Pomerantz’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated career, during which he took shots of celebrities like Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor and The Beatles.

Unger’s free talk will run from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the gallery, 212 D St. in downtown Davis. No RSVP is necessary.
