For over 35 years, Lonnie Schlein worked as photo-editor for The New York Times while simultaneously pursuing his own career as a photographer. In 2001, he was assigned to handle all photography documenting the Sept. 11 attacks on The United States for the paper’s special section, “A Nation Challenged,” which won the Pulitzer Prize. He also edited The Times’ photo book, “A Nation Challenged,” which was on the best-seller list for several months.
While at The New York Times, Mr. Schlein served as Foreign Picture Editor and was in charge of photo coverage during the fall of Gorbachev and other major world events; he served as National Picture Editor during both the Clinton and Bush Administrations, and spent much time in Washington directing coverage of three Presidential Elections, Inaugurations, and the Impeachment process. He has also served in the Metro, and Arts sections, as well as the Travel section.
This exhibition presents a selection of artworks that explore Lonnie Schlein’s photography and its development over decades and spanning across the world in its entirety.
