Burt Glinn(1925 – 2008) is known as one of the most prolific photographers of his generation. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Glinn served in the US Army and studied literature at Harvard University. In 1951, while working for LIFE magazine, he joined Magnum as an associate and became a full member in 1954, one of the first Americans at the young agency. Glinn gained recognition for his coverage of the Cuban Revolution and his in-depth color series on the South Seas, Japan, Russia, Mexico, and California, each of which was published as a complete issue of Holiday. In the 1960s, he became one of the first photographers to enter the field of annual reports and for the next four decades created a visual record of corporate America’s rapid growth. Throughout his career, he regularly covered national and international historical events, cultural icons, and political figures for leading publications. Whenever possible, Glinn made images of religious communities and leaders, as well as sacred architecture and rituals. Many of these photographs became his personal favorites. The recipient of several major awards in his lifetime, Glinn’s work continues to be featured in numerous exhibitions and books.
