WILL MCBRIDE (1931-)
Famous Documentary Photographer of the 60s and 70s
Will McBride was born in St. Louis and grew up in Chicago. He was educated at the Art Institute
of Chicago, the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts, and the National Academy of
Design in New York. He also took private lessons from Norman Rockwell. At the age of 24, he moved to Germany and began his career in photography. He eventually became a German citizen, and continues to reside there.
McBride rose to fame in the 1950s and 60s as a pre-eminent documentary photographer. His photo essays appeared regularly in various German magazines, and that work has established itself as a chronicle of the Kennedy and Adenauer years. He has always been a controversial artist. The sex education book Show Me, for which he was photographer, was initially received positively in Europe and North America by educators. However, due to strict laws enacted in the U.S. in the 80s and 90s, it was withdrawn from publication there, and is now considered child pornography.
In his autobiographical photo-essay book entitled I, Will McBride, he wrote:
I am very interested in boys. Let there be no doubt about that.Source:
