David Douglas Duncan Remembers Life

For his 1999 retrospective exhibition at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum, Duncan sat for an interview about his years with Life magazine. This 11-minute excerpt is condensed from the full interview and was used in the exhibition on a continuous loop.

Duncan donated his archive, valued at more than $15 million, to the Ransom Center in 1996. The archive contains more than 50,000 images, as well as the cameras and other equipment that Duncan used to make some of his greatest photographs.
