About this Piece

Andy Hanson was 27 years old in 1960 when he was hired by the Dallas Times Herald as lab manager of their newly formed photography department, the same year Kennedy and Johnson campaigned in Dallas and Ft. Worth. He rode in the press vehicle as an unofficial photographer during many of the campaign stops, and captured events surrounding the assassination as a personal pursuit. Iconic images such as this were never published by the newspaper.

About the Artist

Andy Hanson was best known as a noted and well-liked society photographer for the Dallas Times Herald from 1960-1991. He chronicled daily life in Dallas for over three decades. Ever-present at society functions and news worthy events, his trademark was his 35mm Leica range finder camera perched on a chest tripod that allowed him to juggle a hand-held flash with homemade bounce card and a notepad for taking names.

ARTIST STATEMENT
"I like to walk a lot. I like to ride with somebody else driving, it’s great. I like to be a passenger so I can see more. When I drive, I go the back ways. I don’t like to get on the freeways – I never know where to get off. The other day I was driving a guy to Mesquite. He said, “Turn right here.” I said, “Who’s driving? Whose car is this?” So we went the back way and saw some things he’d never seen before. When you get on the freeway you can’t see anything. There’s nothing to see anyway." (Andy Hanson)
