An exhibition, a tribute, a famous photo lab (Central Dupon images), for Paris Match, this is our way of celebrating the photographs of Jack Garofalo. Jack joined Paris Match in the magazine’s early years in 1953 and spent the next 35 years meeting the world’s most important people. He didn’t have a specialty, and took great pleasure in photographing everything from current events to celebrities. On a Monday he was shooting Brigitte Bardot nude in Saint-Tropez, and the foolowing week he was covering gangs in the Bronx. He cared little for technique, and if the lighting wasn’t great, he let the lab take care of it. How many times did he tell me, when I was a printer at Central Color, “just make it work.”
