Val Perrin’s Empty Brick Lane - In this final selection from Val Perrin‘s superb pictures of Spitalfields taken between 1970-72, and published now for the first time, I have focussed on his atmospheric photography of the deserted streets, recording the sense of abandonment and dereliction which prevailed at that time. | Spitalfields Life
The Kiss Of Life by Rocco Morabito, 1968 Pulitzer Prize. Showed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation between two workers on a utility pole. Randall G.Champion was unconscious and hanging upside down after contacting a high voltage line; fellow lineman J.D. Thompson revived him while strapped to the pole by the waist. Champion survived and lived until 2002, when he died of heart failure at the age of 64; Thompson is still living. The photograph was published in newspapers around the world.
