Commentary, Prints & Exhibitions
“Nobody looking at John Loengard’s pictures can fail to find them convincing, or to recognize the imagination, sensitivity and the humanity of the man who took them…. Loengard always captures something unpredictable in an image. It’s a technique with a powerful result.”
“John Loengard makes magic with his camera.”
“It’s fair to say photographer John Loengard is a Life magazine legend.”
“Photographer and picture editor, mentor and oracle, curator and historian, critic and scholar—over the years, John Loengard has assumed all of these roles, with élan and focus, obstinacy and whip-smart intelligence.”
“Loengard has counted everyone from monarchs to pop stars among his subjects. Vanity Fair magazine once called him ‘an oracle’, but he shrugs off such praise. ‘Taking a photograph,’ he says, ‘is as simple as boiling an egg.’”
