Daniel James Charles    1938-2017

 

born Daniel James Charles

 

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.
