Michael A. Tony Vaccaro

Tony Vaccaro, orphaned early, was shuffled between America and Italy, but in those early years he was determined  to capture beauty with his camera, and from the off his early contact sheets demonstrate impeccable balance, innovation and, rare for the age we live in, journalistic integrity. He didn’t stage it or make it up. His best decade was the 1950’s, his best stage was Europe emerging from the ruination of war, and his best subjects were formidable personalities like Picasso, Stirling Moss and Jackson Pollock, always using natural light. A retrospective is taking place in the Town Hall in Caen, France.
