LIFE: Defining Photography

2020-05-22 - 2020-06-28

A photo-journalistic triumph, LIFE was a stunning affirmation of the humanist notion that the camera’s proper function is to persuade and inform. During the magazine’s golden years its photographers were the elite of their craft and enjoyed worldwide esteem. Published weekly from 1936 to 1972, the work of the photographers of LIFE magazine came to define the medium of photojournalism, and their photographs recorded history and informed us all for most of the 20th Century.
