‘68: The News, The Stories, The Photographs

Nice exhibition at the national theatre displaying how the IHT covered the events of 1968. I love the front pages all over the wall and in the book 12o Years of Front Page News.
Most noticeable is the dominance of Associated Press and United Press International pictures on all the front pages. All agency credited, but no photographer bylines back then. In fact UPI only used to add the photographer initials to the picture caption.
