This retrospective celebrates Jim Hubbard's career as an acclaimed photographer: from a young photojournalist covering the '67 Detroit Riots, through his current work from Palestine. Also represented are coverage of five presidents as a member of the White House Press Corps; extraordinary portraits of Bobby Kennedy interacting with an adoring public in Indianapolis shortly before his assassination in 1968; and intimate portraits of Jim's mother during her struggle with Alzheimer's disease.
