The Latest From The Rag Blog-The Voice Of The Faded 1960s

Documentary Photographer Ken Light About His Books on the ’60s and Texas Death Row

Ken Light is the Reva and David Logan Professor of Photojournalism at the Graduate School of Journalism at U.C. Berkeley. We discuss Ken’s new book, What’s Going On? Photographs from 1969-1974, which features work that reflected his “young radical vision” in the late ’60s-early ’70s, when he was a photographer for Liberation News Service (LNS) in New York. We also talk about Ken’s experiences in producing his earlier book, Texas Death Row. Light was the first photographer ever to be given access to Texas’ infamous death house, including the prisoners’ cells — when Death Row was at the Ellis Unit in Huntsville.
