Présentation de l'éditeur

Exploring the broad range of human nature from the softest notes of life to the crashing crescendos of war, legendary photographer David Douglas Duncan has captured some of the 20th century's truly iconic images. In this breathtaking visual autobiography, Duncan's finest works speak volumes about his extraordinary career and the events he witnessed and recorded.

Shooting for National Geographic and many other publications, he covered a wide range of subjects that are shared in this book: the South Pacific in World War II, North Korea, Palestine, Vietnam, Afghanistan, the treasures of the Kremlin, and the life and work of his close friend, Pablo Picasso. Still exuberant in his eighth decade, David Douglas Duncan continues to work behind the lens, embracing and illuminating the human experience. He designed Photo Nomad to be accessible to the widest possible audience—general readers as well as photographers, art lovers, and history enthusiasts. With nearly 500 pages and more than 400 stunning images, it is a remarkably affordable treasure.

One of the photographic legends, David Douglas Duncan's work is simply amazing!
Whether it's his black & white photos from war conflicts or depicting stories in colour in different parts of the world, his unique sense of observation and his ubiquity make him one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century.

An Epic Life Tale Told in Photographs 14 février 2004
Par Tome Raider - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
About ten years ago, when I was about 30, I kept running into this book called "Yankee Nomad" at used bookstores. It was a book published in 1966 and it contained some incredible photographs. I finally found a copy which was in perfect condition for a reasonable price and I bought it.
And I actually found myself reading it from cover to cover. My initial attraction was based on my love of photography. But I soon discovered that the book appealed even more to my love of travel. David Douglas Duncan was a photojournalist who roamed the world for various major magazines (Life, National Geographic, etc.) for several decades (five or six!) on assignment covering some of the most significant events of the 20th century. I do not exaggerate when I say this man's life makes Hemingway's pale by comparison. The variety of places, people, events and dramas which this man photographed is staggering.
This book, "Photo Nomad" seems to be an updated and revised verion of "Yankee Nomad." It includes the next three decades of DDD's life as well as the photography going back to the late 1930's covered in "Yankee Nomad." There is some overlap of photos, but the new stuff is so good and of sufficient quantity that it is definitely worth having even if you happen to have (or want) "Yankee Nomad."
It is the DIVERSITY of images and places which I find most appealing. A sampling: The south Pacific in WWII; North Korea; treasures of the Kremlin; Palestine; Afgahnistan; the High Atlas mountains of Morocco; giant squid fishing off the coast of South America; Egypt; and, as quite an enhancement, many photos of Picasso at work (DDD and Picasso became close friends and were mutual admirers). I also loved a series of photos of classic 1950's Mercedes which were raced by DDD at high speed in beautiful European settings and photographed at slow shutter speeds so DDD could capture "the spirit" of the car as it whizzed by leaving a trail of light.
I've always been a Robert Capa admirer, but DDD has war photos which are just as good and then a vast variety of other images. His life has been a montage of powerful images and events. I just wish I'd read (or just looked at the photos) of his books 20 years ago, as I'm sure I would have altered my career choices based on what I learned about this man's career.
This book is very well produced in cloth-covered hardbound. There is a moving little photo story of DDD's small doggy which apparently was recently taken when his car was stolen and which DDD responded to by utilizing his media friends to mount a massive publicity campaign to recover (successfully, for ransom money). DDD is apparently still alive and well and living in France.
My short list of Magnificent 20th Century Lives would include DDD in the TOP FIVE. This book explains why. If you are into travel, photography, adventure, history, geography, or humanity, you will LOVE this book and you will feel great affection for its creator.

Epic and Awe-inspiring 7 août 2004
Par Terry Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
David Douglas Duncan LIVED the twentieth century. The wars, the celebrations and celebrities, the places and times--HE WAS THERE, and he captured it on film. As page twenty-four introduces, "My 20th Century". Photo Nomad is a photographic autobiography of his life, a life of such far-reaching adventures, experiences, and travels that is almost impossible to fully comprehend. In a time when most photo books have the lifespan of the latest pop song, this book is an epic. Beautifully printed in Italy, it is a quality volume that will last many lifetimes and provide endless inspiration.

David Douglas Duncan Updates His Earlier Youthful Memoir 29 décembre 2008
Par James R. Holland - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In 1966 Duncan's photojournalism memoir "Yankee Nomad" was published. It was an excellent, lavishly illustrated autobiography of one of the great photojournalists of the 20th Century. However, it was premature because Duncan did 18 (19 if you count this one) more photojournalism books after "Yankee Nomad" was published. This reviewer and long time fan of DDD's work is very grateful for this much needed 464 page biographical update.
Duncan is a U.S. Marine in the truest sense of "Once a Marine, Always a Marine." His 1951 publication "This Is War" brought a soldier in the trenches eye view of the Korean War to the world. It was a shocking look as the everyday heroism of U.S. Marines at War. Seven years later, his book "The Private World of Pablo Picasso" provided the world an amazing and intimate look into the private life of one of the world's greatest artists. It was one of DDD's eight books about Picasso, his art and family life. No other artist has ever been so thoroughly documented in photographs.
DDD, who when he was a marine fighting in World War II, was interviewed and photographed with his rifle in the jungle by a young Naval Officer by the name of Richard M. Nixon did two books about soldiers at war in Vietnam. And much later a nightly television essay using B&W still photographs of the Presidential Campaign that was also published in 1969 as a coffee table photography book called "Self-Portrait: USA." A dog lover he also did three books about his and Picasso's beloved pets--"Yo-Yo: Kidnapped in Provence," "Picasso and Lump" and "Thor."
The first time I met DDD was at Wilson Hick's Miami Communications Conference in the mid-1960's. Duncan was one of the guest speakers and he showed some of the Paris picture series he'd just sold to "Look" magazine of a prism technique of multiple images he called "Prismatics." He'd gotten a then unheard payment of $75,000 for that color photographic essay. Everyone at the conference was in awe of the man, his talent and his bravery. At the very beginning of my own photography career, I'd been immensely influenced by the publication of "The Private World of Pablo Picasso." I even forgave DDD for stealing away by gal pal at the conference. I'd even given her my permission to take advantage of her opportunities to hang with him. I told her I thought she'd be crazy not to get to know him better. He was truly a world-famous celebrity.
That said, I also liked, loved DDD's photographs. He was trolling through history with his cameras. He was taking the photography book concept and format to new frontiers. He was one of the strongest influences on my personal photographic style and I'm certain he was equally as inspiring to several generations of news photographers. He set the standards and kept raising the bar for excellence. He was certainly one of the truly great war photographers and unlike his friend Robert Capa, DDD survived fierce combat in several wars. It was Capa's friendship with Picasso that led Duncan to the artist's doorstep where his first picture (of thousands) was of the artist while Picasso was taking a bath in an old fashioned claw legged tub. DDD was one of the most important documenters of 20th Century Artists. This book is a must for any true fan of photography. I can't recommend it highly enough. DDD's work is right off the rating charts.

The Glory of Photography 11 septembre 2005
Par R. J. Lavey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
David Douglas Duncan's book is an extraordinary collection of photographs documenting a range of events in this interesting man's life. Of special interest to me were the photographs and images he captured in Korea during the war. That was a place I served during the last year of that conflict,and the book brought back many memories of a time long ago.

This book I treasure, and it is my intent to return to it often in the years that remain in my life.

How happy I am that I was able to locate it through Amazon.com.

The Greatest Generation of Photojournalists 16 novembre 2007
Par Marco Antonio Abarca - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Photojournalism reached its peak in the years immediately following the Second World War. These were the years when Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David Seymour, Ernst Haas and Werner Bischoff wandered the world taking photos for the Magnum Photo Agency. David Douglas Duncan was one of their contemporaries. Instead of taking photos for the more glamorous Magnum, he worked for Life Magazine. Interestingly, his reputation is not as great as the Magnum photographers. One has to wonder whether it was his talent or the place he worked for that caused him to be consigned to the role of a lesser master of Twentieth Century photography.

"Photo Nomad" is a collection of Duncan's work from the late 1930's to the late 1970's. Duncan like his peers was everywhere during this time period. If something important was happening in the world, Duncan was there taking photographs. His photographs of the Korean and Vietnam Wars are especially powerful. However, if he will be remembered for any images, it will be for his wonderful photographs of Pablo Picasso. "Photo Nomad" is as much a history book as it is a collection of first rate photographs. Highly recommended.
