Bill Eppridge has been a leading photojournalist for more than 35 years. Among his most famous work is the landmark photo essay on drug use, 'Needle Park', which won the 1964 Headliner Award. That story later inspired the motion picture, 'Panic in Needle Park' starring Al Pacino. In 1966 and 1968, Eppridge photographed the presidential campaign of Robert Kennedy even accompanying him to the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles where an assassin's bullet fatally struck the Senator.
