I remember

I finished the Halstead book last night and it was more than I thought it would be. It is more than photos out of the past. There are stories. I remember all of the events (does that mean I'm old) and seeing the photographs. Halstead is a dedicated professional. Thanks for the memories (good & not so good). KJH June 25, 2007

Look over his Halstead's shoulder through nearly a half century of world history

Over the course of a long airline flight, I picked up Halstead's book and found myself unable to put it down through three cross-country legs (even through the obligatory bit about putting everything away and raising tray tables... but I digress). Far more than the tale of a photographer's look through the lens over the course of several decades, this book provides insights, commentary and background to some of the most photographed events in the last half century... as well as the pictures themselves. Exceptionally well written for a guy who is known for his reporting via a lens, Halstead's work is at times, funny, always intriguing and a thoroughly engrossing read.

Moments in Time

Not long after I started reading the book I found it to be a lot more than a lifetime Photographer's experiences. It is a thinking and caring Photojournalist's eye witness insight to Historical events of the latter half of the 20th century.Dirck gives a romantic vieu of Saigon City with the range of honest emotions that war times generate. He also presents unique insights to the performances of past presidents that served while he was a White House photographer. Dirck does this with an eye for significant events through both word and pictures. The historical and artistic content of the pictures is a bonus.A rewarding read.

New Insights to the World from One of the Most Respected Photographers

From Douglas Kirkland This book is an incredible and riveting look at the some of the most important events from the last fifty years. Not only is Dirck Halstead a great photojournalist but he is also a superb raconteur. There is a wonderful mix of war, politics, Hollywood and humanity which make this book difficult to put down once you've started reading it. We recognize many of the iconic images but the words give an important dimension which adds still more to their meaning. Congratulations Dirck Halstead and thank you for bringing us this significant treasure.

Moments In Time By Dirck Halstead -- A Supurb Book!

This book is not just a book of photography, but the story of the life of a photojournalist. The photography in this book is great, but I enjoyed reading the text even more. The dialog is entertaining and informative, and it is almost like the author is talking to you, like in a conversation. You are not going to be disappointed if you purchase this book. This is not a "Coffee Table" book, but rather one that you are going to want to pick up and read. Outstanding job, Mr. Halstead!
