History’s First Draft: My Life as a Newspaper Photojournalist

May 4 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Working as a Star-Telegram photographer for almost forty-two years, Rodger Mallison always put himself on the front line to capture, in a fraction of a second, the significance of an event. Mallison’s work exemplifies the Irving Penn quote that “a good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. Join us as Mallison shares his most captivating images, the story behind them, and how they moved him.

Rodger Mallison is a graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in journalism. He joined the photo staff of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram shortly after graduating and worked there for almost forty-two years covering every type of story that appears in newspapers. Assignments took him to every part of Fort Worth, most places in Texas, and around the country and world. Since 2018 he has freelanced for a variety of clients. He lives in Fort Worth with his wife Carol. They have two grown children who attended Paschal High School and Texas A&M, of their own free will.
