Ivan Massar

(Continued Here)

Fiume, Yugoslavia

 

Massar grew up in a small town in Ohio, with an insatiable curiosity to travel and see the world. He served a stint as a U. S. Navy photographer, on the air craft carrier, Lexington, in the South Pacific, from 1943-1946, and supplied support photography for the landings at Iwo Jima, Guam, Saipan, and the Philippines.

Waiting, Zagreb, Yugoslavia

Following the war, he returned to study at the Art Center School in Los Angeles, and then at the Academie Andre Lhote in Paris, in 1949, where he found great delight documenting Parisians at work and play. On returning to the States, he was commissioned by Roy Stryker, the legendary head of the Farm Security Administration, to photograph the steel mills of Pittsburgh, the Masabi iron mines of Minnesota and the coal mines of West Virginia. Massarís interest in world events led to his joining Martin Luther Kingís march to Montgomery.

Italian Gentleman

 

 

As a photographer for Black Star, a world-class photo agency, he journeyed to Spain during the Franco dictatorship, and to Kenya, Nairobi, the Seychelles, and North Vietnam.

Sitting in the Garden

 

 

He has photographed many of the famous and infamous, from Mickey Mantle, Robert Frost, Martin Luther King and John Updike, to George Lincoln Rockwell, the head of the American Nazi party.
