Briscoe Center for American History, Austin, Texas
A photojournalist who has covered the White House for Time magazine for more than twenty years, Diana Walker has been recognized by the World Press, the White House News Photographers Association, and has had her photographs published in Paris Match, Vanity Fair, People, Life, and New York magazine. All the photographs for this exhibition were selected from her archive documenting the American presidency, U.S. Congress from 1979-2000, world leaders, and historically significant events. Ms. Walker donated her archive to the Briscoe Center in 1997 and it is a rich resource for news media history that supports teaching and research at the University of Texas at Austin.
