PAUL FUSCO

"RFK Funeral Train Rediscovered"

This exhibit coincides with the 40th anniversary of Robert Kennedy's assassination, which shook the country in June 1968. Photographer Paul Fusco, on assignment for LOOK magazine, rode the train with RFK's body from New York City to Washington D.C. for burial at Arlington and captured with a lens the emotions of everyone he encountered along the way -- the rich, the poor, black, white, somber, reverent, soulful. The photographs were shot using Kodachrome film and have the retro, vibrant colors that were typical of photojournalism of the time.

Danziger Projects, 521 w. 26th St., (212) 629-6778. Jun. 6–July 31.
