(Rochester, NY)— Eye on the Sixties: The Iconic Photography of Rowland Scherman is an intimate portrait of photographer Rowland Scherman, who captured the transformational events and figures of the 1960s, including the March on Washington, the Newport Folk Festival, Woodstock, the first Beatles concert in the United States, the burial of the Apollo I astronauts at Arlington National Cemetery, and the 1968 presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy, among many others. Eye on the Sixties: The Iconic Photography of Rowland Scherman premieres on Sunday, November 3, 2013 at 2 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
