The Man Behind The Photo | Arthur L. Benjamin
Our father Arthur L. Benjamin was a photographer during WW2. He worked for the Army newspaper Stars and Stripes and from 1942 - 1945 he was stationed in The Middle East. He covered four presidential conferences, (Casablanca, Cairo, Tehran and Yalta) hanging of Mussolini and the liberation of Bergen-Belsen and Dachau. He left behind hundreds of negatives and prints. The following photos are a small sampling scanned or photographed from his army photo albums and have not been touched up. Because of the ephemeral nature of film and paper we are urgently seeking help and advice on how to preserve, save and share his work.
