Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Richard Drew is best known for capturing the devastating image of Falling Man on September 11, 2001, but his portfolio is filled with memorable images of figures from history, sports, music and entertainment. Take a front row seat to history as Drew reflects on the stories behind the images. One of four photographers present during the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, Drew has photographed Nelson Mandela, Fidel Castro, Yasir Arafat, Golda Meir, British royalty, and every United States president beginning with Lyndon Johnson. He also captured images of film stars like Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra, music legends from Luciano Pavarotti to the Beatles, and sporting greats Wilt Chamberlain, Willie Mays, Muhammad Ali and Pele in action. Join him for this rare opportunity at a glimpse behind the camera for fascinating stories of universal icons and historic moments.
