Reviews

"He's a complicated artist, that Harry. But what this shutterbug's eye arranges, sometimes in a split second, is the work of a singular craftsman with a rare gift: raising the click of a camera shutter to the level of art." --Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"The only thing better than Harry Benson behind the camera is Harry Benson in front of it." --Kathryn Laskaris, Toronto Star "Harry can charm the snakes out of the trees." --Andre Leon Tally, former editor-at-large, Vogue "Harry can shoot fast and make art." --James L. Brooks, Academy Award-winning director "Benson has shot an astonishing range of celebrities, from Yogi Berra at his ease to the society revelers at Truman Capote's legendary Black and White Ball to the most personal portrait of Bill and Hillary Clinton you've ever seen."--Kenneth Turan, Film Critic, Los Angeles Times "Harry Benson is perhaps the greatest photojournalist ever. His work has been a part of all of our lives for generations." --David Noh, Film Journal International AS SEEN IN: AARP, BuzzFeed News, BBC News, CBS Evening News, Telegraph, New York Journal of Books, Vanity Fair
