About this title


Dust jacket notes: "'For Alfred Eisenstaedt, the world, and especially the world of people, is a serious proposition. It is also amusing, wondrous, shocking, and infinitely various, but it is always real and in that sense, serious.'" So wrote Henry R. Luce, founder of Time, Inc., in 1966. By then Eisenstaedt had already been on the staff of Life for thirty years and had gained the reputation for having photographed more people and famous personalities than any other photojournalist. In this amazing collection of pictures, dating from the late 1920s and reaching into the early 1970s, we see not only some of Eisenstaedt's best pictures but, for the most part, photographs that have never been published before. Included are more than three hundred well-known people, from Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill to John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon, from Richard Strauss, and Igor Stravinsky in the 1930s to Leonard Bernstein and Benjamin Britten in the 1960s, from George Bernard Shaw and John Galsworthy to Ernest Hemingway and Saul Bellow, from Marlene Dietrich and Charlie Chaplin in 1928 to Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Marlon Brando, and Mia Farrow in more recent years. Here also are kings, queens, politicians, scientists, inventors, sportsmen, artists, conservationists, businessmen, and ordinary people in every walk of life, introduced by Eisenstaedt himself, who tells briefly and informally of some of his travels and experiences as a photographer."
