Bob Gomel: Classics

2023-10-06 - 2023-11-19

The photographs of Bob Gomel put you in a diner with Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X, poolside with the Beatles, and in the audience at Rice University as President John F. Kennedy delivered his historic “We choose to go to the Moon” speech.

 “I had no idea the 60s would be so iconic. It seemed quite ordinary at the time, but looking back on it now, I realize how fortunate I was.”

This exhibition celebrates Bob Gomel’s recent 90th birthday with several never-before-see photographs from three of his most classic assignments for LIFE magazine.

On Friday, October 6 Bob Gomel discussed his memories from these iconic moments in history. Watch the Gallery conversation here.


Exhibition continues through November 19, 2023
