About this title


Eisenstaedt and colleagues like Carl Mydans, Andreas Feininger, Cornell Capa, Gordon Parks, Dmitri Kessel, and thirty-eight other Life photographers interviewed here were practicing journalism in fact, but the results often turned out to be art. In one hundred hours of taped conversations, they confided their ambitions, anxieties, and accomplishments to their friend and peer John Loengard, Life's most distinguished contemporary photo essayist. These real-life stories of the adventures and mishaps of staff photographers - from World War II in Europe and the Pacific to the tumultuous events of the 1950s through the 197Os - delineate the golden era of photojournalism.

About the Author:

John Loengard joined Life magazine's staff in 1961. Hailed by American Photographer as "Life's most influential photographer" during the 1060s and instrumental in its rebirth as a monthly in 1978, Loengard served as its pictures editor until 1987. His books of his own photographers include PICTURES UNDER DISCUSSION, CLEBRATING THE NEGATIVE, and GEORGIA O'KEEFE at GHOST RANCH. He is also the editor of LIFE CLASSIC PHOTOGRAPHERS: A PERSONAL INTERPRETATION, and LIFE FACES. Loengard lives in New York City.
