Retired Iowa Photographer Behind Iconic Princess Diana Funeral Photos
WINTERSET, Iowa -- Although his name may sound like it, John Gaps III is far from anything royal. The Winterset resident is a war photojournalist by trade, and in September of 1997 the Associated Press called on him to cover Princess Diana’s funeral. It was one of only a handful of other major events Gaps covered that was not war-related, and he was willing to take any risks necessary.
