Me And Joe

Written by I.C. "Chuck" Rapoport

"This is me: I.C. “Chuck” Rapoport, on Joseph Pilates “Bednasium” being instructed on the proper form
for a modified “Breathing/Hundred” movement by Joe himself. October, 1961."

 

I.C. Rapoport has had two overlapping exciting careers. He studied photography at Ohio University, then, after working as an assistant to a famous Brides fashion photographer, struck out on his own as a freelance photojournalist. His photos have appeared in Life, Paris-Match, Saturday Evening Post, TIME, Newsweek, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated and other national magazines. His exclusive photographs of exercise guru Joseph Pilates are now famous in the fitness arena.

As the picture magazines began to die out he made an almost (emphasis on almost) seamless switch to writing scripts for movies-of-the-week and then worked several years as a Writer/Producer on hit series, "Law & Order," "Profiler" and "Veritas: The Quest." Rapoport was on the staff of "Law & Order" when it won the Emmy for Best Dramatic Series, he was nominated for a Writers Guild Outstanding Dramatic Writing Award and he received the 1997 Edgar Allen Poe Mystery Writers Award.
