Daniel James Charles        1938-2017

 

Don Hogan Charles (...)

was the first black

photographer

to be hired

by The New York Times,

and (...)  drew acclaim

for his evocative shots

of the civil rights movement

and everyday life

in New York

 

(...)

In more than

four decades

at The Times,

Mr. Charles

photographed

a wide range of subjects,

from local hangouts

to celebrities

to fashion

to the United Nations.

 

But he may be

best remembered

for the work that earned him

early acclaim:

his photographs

of key moments

and figures

of the civil rights era.

 

In 1964,

he took

a now-famous photograph,

for Ebony magazine,

of Malcolm X holding a rifle

as he peered out of the window

of his Queens home.

 

In 1968,

for The Times,

he photographed

Coretta Scott King,

her gaze fixed in the distance,

at the funeral of her husband,

the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
