A new exhibition of the work of LIFE magazine staff photographer and editor John Loengard’s black-and-white photographs is currently showing through the end of January at the Monroe Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Among the prints in the exhibition are several photographs of legendary photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstadt, Annie Leibovitz and Richard Avedon. These photographs are also part of Loengard’s new book, Age of Silver: Encounters With Great Photographers (powerHouse), which celebrates, through Loengard’s portraits, some of the most notable photographers in the history of the medium.

Today is the 69th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the beginning of America’s involvement in World World War II. Five years ago, Thomas Sanders began traveling the country to photograph World War II veterans. Last year, writer Veronica Kavass joined the project to help record the stories of Sanders’ subjects. The result is a chronicle of courage and hardship, sacrifice and determination, joy and loss. The images and stories were recently collected in THE LAST GOOD WAR: The Faces and Voices of World War II, published by Welcome Books.
