DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — A photojournalist whose career included capturing images of a mortally wounded Robert F. Kennedy has died in Connecticut. Bill Eppridge was 75.
His wife, Adrienne Aurichio, says he died Thursday morning at a hospital in Danbury after a brief illness.
Eppridge's photos of RFK when he was shot in a California hotel kitchen on June 5, 1968, are some of the most well-known images of that day.
His career included stints working for high-profile magazines such as Life, Sports Illustrated and National Geographic.
Eppridge photographed a wide range of subjects, from the Beatles to young people in what was then the Soviet Union.
His wife says his funeral will be private, with a memorial service to follow.
