ReturnJohn Collins

Already an experienced photographer and filmmaker, John F. Collins enlisted in the U.S. Army at the start of World War I.  He was assigned to the aviation section of the Signal Corps as a photographer and moviemaker.  Although the army did not send him to Europe until a few days before the end of the war, he remained in Paris for a number of months, stationed at the Pathé studios in Paris where he made movies and photographs of post-war events. He filmed and photographed President Wilson, General Pershing and the president of France.  In his free time he photographed Parisian city life, often at night. After he returned to the U.S. in 1919, he launched a long, successful career in advertising photography..
