About the photographer:

Mark Sennet began his career by being at the right place at the wrong time while covering New York City's Italian American Civil Rights League rally as a freelance photojournalist in June 1971. That day, crime family boss Joe Colombo was shot and seriously injured. Standing next to Sennet, wearing press credentials from the league and disguised as another photojournalist was the assassin who shot Colombo. "This guy opens a briefcase by the fountain at Columbus Circle and he pulls out his gun and walks over and shoots Colombo right in front of me." Sennet recalled. "I hit the deck...I didn't know what to do.I instinctively thought 'I better take a picture'.

That photograph, purchased by the Associated Press, launched a career that spanned 30 years, which included work at the London Daily Express, a 28-year career at Time-Life, and contracts from both the Australian and New Zealand Tourist Boards to photograph their respective countries.

While at the London Daily Express, Sennet covered five Royal Tours, including Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and other royal family members, as well as the White House during Watergate, where he became friendly with then-Vice President Gerald Ford.

In recent years, he was requested to cover the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Sennet has many stories to go with the pictures, including the friendships he struck with many of his subjects, the history made as photos were taken, and how he snuck on to closed movie sets to shoot without permission.

These original Mark Sennet slides, negatives and transparencies are now being made available for the first time here on soxphotos.
