"Nick DeWolf (1928-2006) was an engineer and entrepreneur who founded a company called Teradyne in the USA. In his spare time he was also cataloging his life with a camera. These amazing photos came long before Flickr but thanks to his son-in-law and archivist, Steve Lundeen, we can finally see his deep catalog of photos. So far there are 43,450! " I've taken a look through some of them and he really was an acomplished photographer, photographing and recording events of everyday life all over the world. Here are some of his Thailand scans from 1972: More here: https://www.flickr.c...57632407378132/ https://www.flickr.c...57632708317555/ https://www.flickr.c...57643068372183/ http://blog.flickr.n...os-nick-dewolf/
Anyone know any more background to this famous 1976 Neal Ulevich photo I came across? The accompanying text says: Brutality in Bangkok 1977 Pulitzer Prize, Spot News Photography, Neal Ulevich, Associated Press October 1976: Thailand's third government in two years teeters on the brink, rocked by clashes between right-wing vocational students and left-wing university students. Late one night, two liberal students are lynched. Associated Press photographer Neal Ulevich covered the Vietnam War for five years. But nothing he saw in the jungle prepared him for the morning of Oct. 6, when right-wing students attack left-wing students near the university. "When I got there, it was getting more and more violent. Paramilitary troops heavily armed with recoilless rifles showed up. The left-wing students were not armed and were not shooting back. They took refuge in the university buildings. "Tremendous volleys of automatic weapons were fired across the soccer fields into the classrooms. There were bodies all over, glass breaking. There was no place to take cover. I was very scared." Finally, the left-wing students surrender. Ulevich heads for the gates, anxious to get his pictures back to his office. "I saw some commotion in the trees. I walked down there and I saw a body hanging. He was certainly dead, but the crowd was so enraged that a man was hitting the body on the head with a folding chair. I stood there to see if anybody was looking at me. Nobody was. I took a few frames and walked away." In the end, an irony: "When I won the Pulitzer, the Bangkok papers noted it on Page One. They were very proud that a photographer from Bangkok had won the Pulitzer. They didn't show the pictures." http://www.flickr.co...ago/5000120044/
