Eisenstaedt: Remembrances
Alfred Eisenstaedt

Book Review
If you really want to know what the 20th century looked like from a front-row seat at the main stage, this book will show you. Alfred Eisenstaedt, who was born in 1898 and lived until 1995, apparently didn't miss a thing. To give but a glimpse of the view he captured, this volume, published on the hundredth anniversary of his birth, includes scores of his most famous photographs. The portrait of a scowling Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Culture and Propaganda, showing exactly what educated evil looks like; a sultry Marilyn Monroe, somewhat fuzzy around the edges because the flustered photographer used the wrong film; the adorable Mary Martin (pre-Pan), girlishly singing a Cole Porter tune; Jackie Kennedy, radiant, seated between her husband and the man who would succeed him; Bertrand Russell; Martin Buber; Helen...

Book Description
Few magazines can lay claim to a century of history or to having published work by so many extraordinary and distinguished photographers and writers as House & Garden.

James Abbe: Shooting Stalin
James Abbe
3865210430
February 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Although he was a contemporary of Alfred Eisenstaedt and Erich Salomon (and just as smart and foolhardy), James Abbe is by no means as famous as his legendary colleagues. American-born Abbe published superb photo documentaries featuring Stalin's Moscow, the last years of the Weimar Republic, and the battlefields of the Spanish Civil War. Obsessed and fearless, Abbe got close to the dictators of Europe: Hitler, Mussolini, Franco. And, in 1932, he was the only American given permission to photograph Stalin and eventually, photographing world leaders became his specialty. In pursuit of various interests Abbe made contact with Russian film directors and artists such as Sergej Eisenstein, Dziga Vertov, and Vsevolod Meyerhold, indulging his passion for film, theater, dance and, above all, the mysteries of whatever happened...


Life Classic Photographs: A Personal Interpretation
John Loengard
0821222635
April 1996
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Former Life photographer and picture editor Loengard has selected his favorites from the works of over 80 photographers published in the last 50 years. Strong, highly expressive, and mostly familiar, all these photographs appeared originally as news photosthe ordinary made extraordinary by talented photographers. The book's layout is uncrowded, the reproduction quality good, and the engaging captions an effective summation of the photographer's attitude. A brief index provides access to photographers and subjects, a useful addition as the photos are presented here in no particular order. Not a history or comprehensive survey of Life , but a fine sampling of its contribution to photojournalism.

Love Affair with Life and Smithsonian
Edward K. Thompson
0826210260
September 1995
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Thompson in 1937 came from the Milwaukee Journal to New York City and the newborn Time Inc. picture weekly, Life, served as managing editor for 20 of its glory years and was eased out when TV began to suck the spirit from general magazines. This matter-of-fact memoir recalls the productive genius and testy temperaments of star photographers such as Alfred Eisenstadt and W. Eugene Smith, the internal rivalry among editors and the almost flighty management style of owner Henry Luce. There are no sensational revelations here. Thompson describes his North Dakota boyhood and wartime army intelligence days and reports from the catbird seat on exactly how Life went about showing its readers the world--rushing air-sea rescue film cross-country overnight to beat a deadline; pestering Truman, MacArthur and the Duke of...
