David Burnett has been photographing the world for more than 40 years. He graduated from Colorado College in 1968 (B.A. Political Science) and began working as a free lancer for Time, then Life Magazine, at first in Washington DC and Miami, and later in South Viet Nam. In 1976 he co-founded Contact Press Images (yes, we just celebrated our 37th Anniversary), in New York, and for the the last three decades, he has traveled extensively, working for most of the major photographic and general interest magazines in the U.S. and Europe. His work encompasses News, Feature, and People pictures, as well as landscapes and scenics. He is known as someone who can, no matter how challenging the assignment, return with The Picture. Reporters Without Borders has just published
"100 Photos for Freedom of the Press" featuring a whole career's worth of David's work. The publication, which helps support R.W.B. is available by mail order: If you click here...
