LATOUR PHOTOGRAPHY

 
 

Eduardo E Latour has been an image maker for more than 40 years.


He started taking pictures in High School back in his native country, Cuba.   There, he attended Villanova University in Havana.


In 1959, while attending Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, the Cuban revolution forces him to move to New York City and start a new life.  He graduated from New York Institute of Photography and landed some assistant jobs to famous photographers like Norman Karlson and Hal Reiff.


While working for The Hecht Co. in Washington DC as an in house photographer, he decided to go on his own and created Latour Photography.  He worked as a freelance photographer for more than 20 years traveling all over the world and doing assignments for clients like the US Navy, Inter American Developing Bank, Westinghouse, Organization of American States, Washington Post, Cancer Society and several advertising agencies.  His work took him to photograph important dignitaries and personalities.  His portrait of Lady Bird Johnson became a painting that hangs in the National Gallery of Portraits in Washington, D. C.


During his days in Washington he created a series of posters from which “Poverty Sucks” became the all time better selling poster.  A commemorative anniversary series has been launched and is for sale in this site along with other images taken by Latour.


In 1984 Latour Photography merge with Rossel Advertising and became a full advertising agency servicing the Washington Metro Area under Latour-Rossel Advertising.
