Title:James H. Karales photographs 1953-2006

This digital collection includes finished prints by 20th century American photojournalist James Karales made between 1953 and 1985. The majority of the images in the collection originated from Karales' documentary work for Look magazine during the 1960s. His major projects include images from Rendville, Ohio, a coal mining town and one of the first racially integrated towns in Appalachia; Vietnam during the war; New York's Lower East Side; logging in Oregon; and individuals and events of the Civil Rights movement during the 1960s, housed in three inter-related groups - the Martin Luther King, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), and Civil Rights Series. Other smaller projects include images of California, New Mexico, as well as a few individual portraits of Diana Vreeland and W. Eugene Smith.
