More Than Words: The Photography of Newsman Bob Paley
The late photojournalist Bob Paley was often described as “a poet with a camera” A staff photographer for the Knickerbocker News newspaper from 1946 to 1974, Paley covered the most important events of the day as well as earning national recognition for his work as a stringer for Time-Life magazines. More Than Words: The Photography of Newsman Bob Paley, a documentary by his daughter, filmmaker Mary Paley, explores the socio- political landscape of Albany as seen through Paley’s astute lens during the tumultuous decades following World War II.
More Than Words is also a heartfelt portrait of the artist, starting with his early forays into photography during his childhood in Rensselaer, NY, his service as a daring aerial photographer in the Army Air Corps during World War II, and onto his maturation as a photojournalist renowned for his ability to “capture the moment.” Among the revealing images drawn from Paley’s archives are candid shots of Robert F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Rockefeller, George Wallace, the 1969 Woodstock music festival, and the tireless activists who braved all in hopes of a better world.
Paley’s unflinching artistry exposed the oppression of minorities, migrants, and the disabled. “I believe the best photojournalism doesn’t merely capture history. It changes history” says the filmmaker. “Paley’s work did that”
A panel discussion on photojournalism and non-fiction filmmaking moderated by former Times Union Editor Mike Spain will follow the film screening. Panelists include journalists Fred LeBrun and Carol DeMare, filmmaker Mary Paley, and producer Mary Farnan-Dugan.
