About the author (1986)

David Douglas Duncan, born in 1916 in Kansas City, Mo., is a well-known photojournalist whose works include This is War! A Photo-Narrative in Three Parts. Duncan's interest in photography began while he was attending the University of Arizona and continued when he transferred to the University of Miami in Florida. After graduation, he became a freelance photographer and eventually sold some pictures to National Geographic. Duncan became a staff photographer for Life magazine after World War II and it was his coverage of the Korean War that led to his first publication, This is War! Duncan and the artist Pablo Picasso became friends in the 1950s, and Picasso was the subject for some of Duncan's finest and best-known work, including The Private World of Pablo Picasso, Picasso's Picassos, Goodbye Picasso, Viva Picasso: A Centennial Celebration, 1881-1981, and Picasso and Jacqueline. He returned to the photography of war during the Vietnam War that he covered, again, for Life. Duncan also wrote about the protest movement and other political events in the 1960s. His book, Self-Portrait: U.S.A., published in 1969 covered the Democratic and Republican Conventions of 1968.
