Question about a photography related LP

Steve Gasbarre , Aug 04, 2008; 02:51 a.m.

Hi,

Sorry to post this question here. I'd appreciate a better place to post it.

I have an LP I can't find any information about and I'm trying to ask a few places about it.

'Famous Photographers Tell How' (Candid CA 1001) (Weegee, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Arthur Rothstein, John Rawlings, Tana Hoban, Philippe Halsman, Bert Stern, Peter Gowland) with a date of 1958 and contact information of 'Candid Recordings, 854 Seventh Ave, New York 19, N.Y.'

From what I can figure out Candid Records was started in 1960 with a jazz focus and ceased production in 1961, so I don't know if there was a prior label named Candid with just a one-note photography record.

I've also contacted Candid Records with this question.

Thanks for any response.

If you head to a good library, you should be able to read about your LP in the Jun 22, 1958 New York Times, under the heading "Panel on Record". The LP was the brainchild of a photographer named Louis Stettner, who I suggest you try contacting for further details.

Wow!

A detailed answer in less than an hour. You must have a photographic memory (as they say....).

I should be able to find that article without any problem.

I just find it hard to believe that I couldn't any information about it, much less the detailed information you give.

Thanks a lot!

Photographic memory? No... just really good Google-fu. :)
