Grey Villet was a master of the classic “fly on the wall” style of photojournalism and he was the absolute master of the 180mm f/2.8 Sonnar. In addition to covering the news in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957 — when a group of high school students attempted to enroll in Little Rock Central High School and were initially prevented by Governor Orval Faubus who called on the National Guard to stop the school’s integration, his assignments included the 1958 arrest of Martin Luther King Jr, Fidel Castro’s triumphant drive into Havana, Jackie Robinson’s daring steal of home base in the 1955 World Series, and the now classic LIFE photo essay “Going Under” about farm foreclosures in the 1980s. Villet’s work will be on display with the Monroe Gallery at the AIPAD Photography Show New York, March 17-20, 2011, at the Park Avenue Armory.- AIPAD. To see more of Villet’s work click here.
