Taking Stock

Just read that legendary Magnum photographer Dennis Stock has recently died. He is best known for having taken a series of iconic photographs of James Dean in the 1950s. I’ve mentioned him before on this blog in connection with his 1962 working visit to Wales. I still don’t know much about his Welsh assignment other than that his brief appears to have been ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’. The above photograph is taken from that set.
