Over the past 70 years, Lawrence Schiller has photographed many of the most important figures in film, politics, and sports. Beyond that, his documentary research and collaboration with writers, and film and television directors and producers has provided historical depth and context to our understanding of several famous personalities, key events and news stories of our time. This exhibit of Mr. Schiller’s work highlights just one aspect of his rich and varied career, through his images of Marilyn Monroe, other film stars, Muhammad Ali, and Robert F. Kennedy.
