Dirck Halstead is one of Americas preeminent photojournalists, whose iconic images have graced more covers of Time magazine than any other photographers. From the battlefields of Vietnam to the halls of the White House to film sets around the world, Halsteads sense of timing and eye for the revealing shot was unerring throughout his 50-year career. Among the 300 photographs in this collection are many that are instantly recognizable, such as Bill Clinton embracing Monica Lewinsky, or Nixon saluting with his famous V-for-victory sign. Others have become more resonant with the passage of time. Throughout, Halstead provides fast-paced, lively, and engaging accounts of his experiences in the field. A one-of-a-kind autobiography in words and pictures, Moments in Time is a half-century of history seen through one photographers lens.
