As a number of people guessed, that's DDD, also known as David Douglas Duncan, born 1916, in 2006. (Those of you who know him personally, no fair [g]—yes, I'm looking at you, Pierce.) The portrait is by Kristy Wigglesworth for the AP, and surfaced again this week because of the record price paid for one of DDD's Leica M3D's. (You get that, right? Three D.) Duncan is notable in a lot of ways—he was a constant presence in the photo magazines in the 1960s and '70s, he was a friend of Picasso's and a sort of visual biographer of the painter's, and he was involved in a high-profile contretemps with H.C.-B. a few years ago after publishing a number of pictures of Henri he took while they had lunch. Not necessarily in that order. A former Marine himself, he "embedded" (before we ever heard that term) with Marines in Korea and Viet Nam and created two of the finest books of combat photography in the history of the medium, This Is War! (1951) and War Without Heroes (1970). He was also instrumental in bringing Nippon Kogaku (Nikon), and by extension the rest of the postwar Japanese optical and camera industry, to the attention to the wider world, for which he is revered at Nikon.
