Carl Fischer: Photographer Who Shot Attention-Getting Esquire Covers

From a New York Times obit by Neil Genzlinger headlined “Carl Fischer, Who Shot Attention-Getting Esquire Covers, Dies at 98”:

Carl Fischer, the photographer who shot some of Esquire magazine’s most famous and provocative covers of the 1960s and early ’70s, including images of Muhammad Ali pierced by arrows and Andy Warhol falling into a giant can of tomato soup, died on Friday at his home in Manhattan.

Mr. Fischer, a self-taught photographer, had been working as an art director in advertising when, in 1963, Harold Hayes, Esquire’s editor, began engaging him regularly to shoot covers. He would ultimately shoot 60 covers for the magazine, usually working with the art director George Lois.
