Product Description 
A shooter for the Associated Press for thirty-three years, Henry Burroughs was assigned to the Washington bureau, and his photos appeared frequently in newspapers around the world, as well as on the covers of Life and other magazines. Close-ups of History is a collection of more than one hundred photos that will amaze all who follow world events. Here is Burroughs s surreptitious shot reproduced around the world of Marshal Henri Philippe P??tain receiving his death sentence and an intimate photo of Jackie Kennedy congratulating her husband after his inaugural address. Depicting presidents and astronauts, the famous and the infamous, these images are accompanied by text that lends insight into how Burroughs went about photographing his subjects.
