Synopsis: Providing a unique glimpse into the lens of a World War II merchant mariner, this collection chronicles personal, life-defining experiences beginning and ending on America's east coast and circumnavigating the globe in between. This photographic essay is the crowning work of a humble man who embraced art to capture history and celebrate the American experience. His voyage leads to the sandy shores of Normandy, the horror of Hiroshima, and on to a triumphant return to the port of Los Angeles. These destinations and Niewenhous' postwar travels—to the Caribbean, South America, the Philippines, and ultimately back home to the back roads of his native America—form the fabric of a vibrant 60-year journey. Memorialized in this rare photographic collection, these images capture the human condition, risky circumstances, forbidden passages, and stunning natural vistas.
Product Description: How did an eighteen year old novice photographer view the world sixty years ago? How did that view change over the following decades? "Sixty Years: A Photographic Journey" provides a unique glimpse into the lens of a World War II merchant mariner and commercial photographer named Charles F. Niewenhous. In 1942 Charles Niewenhous started a sixty year journey that would take him literally around the world and through history. This rich collection of never-before-published black and white and color photographs captures the spirit and heart of an adventurous young mariner who survived war under incredible stress and danger, now retold through the unflinching lens of his faithful camera.
