Photojournalist Joe O’Donnell died in August and, since then, there have been many questions about whether he actually shot many of the images he took credit for during his life. There’s no question about his images from post-atomic bombing Japan, but he also claimed images that predate his becoming a photographer and several iconic images, including one of John F. Kennedy, Jr., saluting at his father’s funeral.

The National Press Photographers Association has posted an in-depth look at his life, his work and the controversy.
