Ku Klux Klan, Reidsville, Georgia, 1966

 

A car being decorated for a Knights of the KKK meeting. Baldwin recalls:

‘Driving through rural Georgia in 1966 I found, to my amazement,

cars being decorated to go to a Knights of the Ku Klux Klan meeting.

I stopped, overcame my fear,

and got permission to follow them to the meeting

and a cross rising on the steps of the County Courthouse in Reidsville, Georgia,

where I completed the photography that night.’

Frederick Colburn Baldwin / Fred Baldwin    1929-2021

 

photographer

who documented wildlife,

the civil rights movement

and American poverty

and helped promote

fellow photographers

from Latin America, Africa

and Asia

 

(...)

 

Mr. Baldwin displayed

extraordinary physical courage

as a photographer

and a deep empathy

that allowed him

to get inside

the lives of the people

he documented.

 

He carried a camera

while serving

as a Marine rifleman

in the Korean War,

received two Purple Hearts

and survived

the brutal 17-day

Battle of Chosin Reservoir

in 1950.

 

His unit was photographed

by David Douglas Duncan

of Life magazine,

which influenced Mr. Baldwin

in his career path.

 

In the 1950s and early ’60s,

he photographed

Sami reindeer herders

in Sweden and Norway,

polar bears near the North Pole

and marlin in the waters off Mexico

for Sports Illustrated,

Esquire and National Geographic.
