I have always been anonymous, that is the person I should be. And it is hard to say why or how you did something, it just happens."
As one of the most esteemed photographers to date, Harry J. Benson (born in Scotland, 1929-) has produced monumental photographic images, capturing some of history's most famous individuals and events. His photos of celebrities and noted incidents have been published in numerous magazines throughout his career, highlighting his immense talent in photojournalism, editorial work, and story-telling visuals.
