First Five Live: The Life and Legacy of Photographer Ted Polumbaum
October 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm EDT
Learn about the life and work of acclaimed freelance photographer Ted Polumbaum, who over his 40-year career captured some of the nation’s most memorable moments.
Daughter Judy Polumbaum will talk about her father’s legacy as chronicled in her new book, “All Available Light: The Life and Legacy of Photographer Ted Polumbaum,” which provides an intimate profile of him.
She will also display some of his best-known photographs.
Polumbaum (1924-2001) captured images from Freedom Summer, New England politics and sports, the struggles in Chile during the 1970s and of such historic figures as Julia Child, Ted Kennedy, Salvador Allende and more.
More than 200,000 photographs from Polumbaum’s career are part of Freedom Forum’s permanent collection.
