Photo-journalist Carl Mydans, who covered famous events including the Great Depression and World War II, has died at his US home aged 97.
One of his most famous images is of General MacArthur
A photographer for seminal photo journalism magazine Life, Mydans captured many world leaders on film, including Churchill and Kennedy.
He often worked alongside his late wife Shelley Smith Mydans, who was a writer.
Mydans' son Seth said his father had died of heart failure on Monday night at his home in Larchmont, New York.
Mydans' most memorable photographs include one of General Douglas MacArthur walking ashore in the Philippines and one showing commuters in 1963 reading newspapers with the headline: "President Shot Dead."
Carl Mydans began his career at The Boston Globe
But it was his stark black-and-white portraits of farm families in Arkansas druing the Depression that first brought him attention.
Mydans and his wife were captured and imprisoned by the Japanese while in the Philippines during World War II.
He later said he refused an offer of freedom if he would take photos for his captors.
He also wrote books, including his photo-journalism title, More Than Meets The Eye in 1959.
Aside from his son, Mydans is survived by a daughter, Misty.
