"One Shot": The World War II Photography of John A. Bushemi
American GIs during World War II could always depend on their efforts being documented for their fellow soldiers and folks back home by a good-natured, talented photographer from Gary, Indiana: John A. Bushemi. Assigned to the Yank, the weekly magazine written by and for enlisted men, John A. Bushemi documented World War II through his photographs. Nicknamed “One Shot” for his uncanny ability to capture even the liveliest action with just one click of his shutter. “One Shot” captures Bushemi’s early days photographing soldiers training at Fort Bragg in North Carolina to his front line assignments among the grizzled American forces engaged in fighting in the pacific. The book includes approximately 100 photographs by and of Bushemi.
