The 1965 marches, protests and demonstrations for racial justice changed Wheaton resident Bernard Kleina’s life. With one camera and two lenses, Kleina captured Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the Chicago Freedom Movement, the fight against discriminatory housing practices in Chicago. Kleina’s King images, shot in color, were acquired by the Smithsonian Museum. His photography anchors the Elmhurst Art Museum’s latest exhibit “In Focus: The Chicago Freedom Movement and the Fight for Fair Housing,” a show that reflects on historical and contemporary responses to fair housing in the Chicagoland, beginning with the Chicago Freedom Movement.

Histories of photography traditionally focused on England, France and the United States. But Dr. Rosenblum’s major contribution, “A World History of Photography” (1984), provided a true global perspective. The book was translated into several languages and remains a standard text in the field.
