Bill Eppridge was an American photographer and journalist for Life magazine. He is most well known for his photograph of Robert F. Kennedy right after his assassination. Much of his other works have been lost to history.
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Bill moved to America with his family early on in his life. He first settled in Nashville where his affair with photography began at an early age. In attempts to compete with his sisters artistic abilities, Bill took to photography and by 15 was working for his high school newspaper. He got a college photography award that granted him an internship at Life magazine where his career quickly took off.
Renowned as one of the most influential photojournalists of his generation, Bill has an array of notable works, even photographing the Beatles during their New York stays. However, it was his 1960s shoot of New York City skateboarders that really captured our attention over at the Knickerbocker family. These photographs inspired a photo series of our own that we are excited to release to you. Stay posted, we've got some cool stuff in the works.
