American I.C. (Chuck) Rapport had a successful career as a professional photojournalist working for many notable publications known for their outstanding photo essays, such as Life Magazine, Paris Match, Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated and more.

Whilst best known here in Wales for his assignment for LIFE Magazine covering the aftermath of the Aberfan disaster in 1966, Ffoton sat down for a conversation with Chuck to reflect on his start in photojournalism in the late 1950's and experiences through his career. What a great storyteller!
