Walter Rosenblum

BIOGRAPHY

1919-

A World War II photographer, Walter Rosenblum’s iconic imagery of Normandy on D-Day was referenced by filmmaker Steven Spielberg.  Humanity was his subject, be it American immigrants, Spanish Civil War refugees, Haitians, or People of the South Bronx, an exhibition funded by a Guggenheim Fellowship.  Rosenblum likened his photography to “writing a love letter,” but the subject would speak for itself.  The artist was a student of Lewis Hine and Paul Strand.  His work appears in the collections of the Getty Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Yale Art Gallery and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
