F11 and Be There

For 65 years and counting, Burk Uzzle has created some of the most iconic photographs in American history. From Martin Luther King to Woodstock to America's small towns and back roads, Uzzle's photographs have provided a breathtaking commentary on American civil rights, race, social justice, and art. Grounded in documentary photography when he was hired by LIFE magazine at age 23, Uzzle's work grew into a combination of split-second impressions reflecting the human condition during his tenure at the international Magnum cooperative (founded by one of his mentors, Henri Cartier-Bresson).
