Ralph J. Amdursky

Ralph J. Amdursky studied at Syracuse University, transferring to Rochester Institute of Technology, where he studied photography. He started his career in 1935 with the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle/Times Union. There he distinguished himself through the use of existing-light and high-speed photography. Ralph soon began photographing for “Life”, “Look”, and “Parade” magazines. During World War II, he joined The Office of War Information (OWI), photographing for “Victory” magazine.

After the war, Amdursky enjoyed a 32 year photographic career with Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, during which time he produced 22 of the Kodak Coloramas which hung in Grand Central Station in New York City. Ralph’s trademark was the spectacular aerial view, usually taken from a helicopter.
