Stan Steams Fine Photography


The name, Stan Steams, is very likely not at all familiar to you. However, at least one of his photographs is.

Interestingly, that photo lost winning the Pulitzer Prize by a single vote. Another photograph, that of Lee Harvey Oswald being shot by Jack Ruby, won that year. However, the photograph of a then very young John, Jr. saluting the caisson bearing his slain father is the one that has been reprinted countless times and is likely known even beyond the “Camelot” generation of baby boomers.
