Descripción de editorial
Jack and Dorothy Fields invested nearly 40 years documenting the enchantment of the world in the picture magazine era of the 1950s to 1980s. As experienced travel journalists – she a writer, he a photographer – they became experts on many parts of the world but especially the South Pacific. They shared a passion for cultural documentation during a pivotal time of change following World War II.
This book showcases just a segment of the Fieldses’ wide-ranging travel photography and writings, and strives to capture the flavor of their love for travel and appreciation for cultures throughout the world. These areas include Southeast Asia, Japan, Europe, Africa, the Americas and the South Pacific. This book was produced by the McDougall Center for Photojournalism Studies at the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism where the Fields Collection of images and writings now resides.
