About this title

Synopsis:

118 color and 47 black and white photographs of Martha's Vineyard. Alfred Eisenstaedt (1898 - 1995) was a German-born American photographer and photojournalist. He began his career in pre-World War II Germany, and after moving to the U.S., achieved prominence as a staff photographer for Life Magazine which featured more than 90 of his pictures on its covers with over 2,500 photo stories published. Among his most famous cover photographs was V-J Day in Times Square, taken during the V-J Day celebration in New York City, showing 'an exuberant American sailor kissing a nurse in a dancelike dip [that] summed up the euphoria many Americans felt as the war came to a close.' Eisenstaedt was 'renowned for his ability to capture memorable images of important people in the news, including statesmen, movie stars and artists' and for his candid photographs, taken with a small 35mm Leica camera and typically with only natural lighting. Eisenstaedt, known as 'Eisie' to his close friends, enjoyed his annual August vacations on the island of Martha's Vineyard for 50 years. During these summers, he would conduct photographic experiments, working with different lenses, filters, and prisms in natural light. Eisenstaedt was fond of Martha's Vineyard's photogenic lighthouses, and was the focus of lighthouse fundraisers organized by Vineyard Environmental Research, Institute (VERI).
