Tom Hodson talks with Paul Fusco, Will Hopkins and Mary K. Baumann

On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, Tom Hodson talks with world-renowned photojournalist and Ohio University alumnus Paul Fusco, along with Will Hopkins and Mary K. Baumann of Hopkins/Baumann, an editorial design firm in Minneapolis.

Fusco's work has appeared in numerous magazines, including Look, Life, Mother Jones, Newsweek, Time and New York Times Magazine.

Fusco was in Athens to attend the fourth annual Schuneman Symposium, sponsored by the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism and R. Smith and Patricia W. Schuneman.

Slideshow: "RFK Train"

As a staff photographer for Look magazine in 1968, Paul Fusco was commissioned to document all the events surrounding the Robert F. Kennedy funeral.

In addition to capturing the thousands of Americans who stood by the railroad tracks to greet the funeral train carrying Kennedy's coffin, he also photographed the mourners gathered at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York, as well as the dramatic night burial in Arlington National Cemetery.

Fusco's photos were recently featured in the HBO documentary One Thousand Pictures: RFK's Last Journey.
