Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Trask's Pictures of Pain: Photography and the Assassination of President Kennedy (Yeoman, 1994) is a highly regarded comprehensive photographic investigation of the JFK murder; this second compilation brings together the pictures and observations of three photographers who covered the events in Dallas?Cecil Stoughton, the official presidential photographer; James Altgens, of the Associated Press; and, James Murray, a very lucky freelancer whose timing was perfect. Their own words show the photographers to be complete professionals of the highest integrity, refusing to be overwhelmed by the incredible emotional stress of the events or seduced by the sometimes outlandish theories of conspiracy honchos. More than 100?several 81/2" x 11"?stark black-and-white photos provide a graphic recollection of this national trauma. The photographers' technical descriptions may escape the general reader, and a summary tying together their thoughts would have been helpful. Yet this work succeeds largely because the photographers speak for themselves and for the outstanding photographic record provided. Recommended for most public libraries and photography collections.?Karl Helicher, Upper Merion Twp. Lib., King of Prussia, PA

Format: Paperback
Richard B. Trask's 1998 publication "That Day In Dallas: Three Photographers Capture On Film The Day President Kennedy Died" represents a follow-up volume (or kind of a 'sequel') to Mr. Trask's earlier and outstanding 640-page book "Pictures Of The Pain", which came out in 1994 and featured many previously-unpublished photographs of the events surrounding President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination.

The paperback edition of "That Day In Dallas" contains 136 pages of pictures and text on high-quality paper. It's a much shorter volume than "POTP", to be sure -- but in some ways I treasure "That Day" even more than the larger "Pain" book, in that most of the photos contained within "That Day" are larger in size than what can be found in "POTP", and therefore, via this larger-print format, the pictures can be studied in greater detail. Plus, the clarity of virtually all of the more than 110 photographs published in this book is pristine. These pictures, all printed in black-and-white, are clear as the proverbial bell.

What author Richard Trask has done in "That Day In Dallas" is to center the book's attention on three individual photographers who each took a series of dramatic (and ultimately historic) pictures "that day in Dallas" ("that day", of course, being Friday, November 22, 1963, the day of JFK's assassination).

The three cameramen chosen for this book's subject matter are:

Cecil Stoughton (the official White House photographer);
James "Ike" Altgens (a photographer for the Associated Press); and ...
Jim Murray (a local Dallas free-lance photographer).
