RFK Funeral Train



Paul Fusco, as a staff photographer for Look magazine, accompanied Robert F. Kennedy's funeral train from New York to Washington D.C in June 1968. A member of Magnum photos since 1973, Fusco's work deals with social issues worldwide, including essays on the reform of migrant labor practices, coal miners in Appalachia, people living with AIDS, residents in the Mexican state of Chiapas, and an ongoing project on children suffering from radiation near Chernobyl.
