Raimondo Borea’s arresting, untitled photo of a woman in the Subway, and other photos from his distinctive NYC photo essays, have been presented on The Today Show by Hugh Downs. A unique example of 1970s NYC Subway photography.
In addition to his NYC street photography and other work, Borea was afforded exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Firing Line, The Today Show, and The Tonight Show, where he captured candid portraits of the show’s hosts, including William F. Buckley, Jr., Johnny Carson, Hugh Downs, Dave Garroway, David Letterman, and Jack Paar. Among the guests that Borea photographed were Fred Astaire, James Baldwin, Salvador Dali, Bette Davis, Farrah Fawcett, Betty Friedan, Benny Goodman, Steve Martin, Ethel Merman, Robert Mitchum, Ayn Rand, Eleanor Roosevelt, Twiggy, Gore Vidal, and TomWolfe. Several telecasts of Borea’s photographs were also presented on The Today Show, narrated by Hugh Downs.
