Fred J. Maroon and the Nixon Years
1970-1974

  一名摄影家,Fred J. Maroon,进入了白宫,为美国前总统尼克拍摄在竞选期间的记录照片,却用照相机记录下了震惊世界的水门事件的前前后后,也记录下了动荡的七十年代的美国。

  The images that you are about to see--one photographer's account of President Richard Nixon's years in office--offer a powerful record of an unsettling time in American history. Fred Maroon, a free-lance photographer known for images of Washington monuments and landscapes, won unusual access to President Nixon in 1970 with a proposal for a book on the Nixon White House.

  After publication of the book the following year, he was invited to record Nixon's reelection campaign operations. As the Watergate controversy unfolded in 1972-1974, Maroon continued to document the Nixon years, photographing the Senate investigation, the House impeachment hearings, and the president's historic resignation on August 8, 1974.
