Name: Karales, James (1930-2002)

Historical Note:

James Karales received a BFA degree in 1955 from Ohio University, and was a photographer for Look.  He joined the magazine's staff in 1960 after a New York gallery show in 1958 and stayed with the organization through 1971, until it closed.  Karales had moved to New York after graduation, and joined the Magnum photo agency and then became the darkroom assistant to master photographer W. Eugene Smith, working for room and board to two years.  Edward Steichen bought two images for the MOMA collection in the late 1950s.  The first major posthumous exhibition of his work was in 1999, by Howard Greenberg's gallery in New York. His most famous photograph is of the Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights March in 1965.
