Alfred Eisenstaedt


Alfred Eisenstaedt (1998 - 1995) is most well known for his Time's Square V-J Day Photo, but his later work in the 1950s and 60s is just as captivating.  He worked for Life magazine until 1972.

Alfred's work is incredible -- it's great reminder of how dimension and dynamic black and white photography can be. And somehow, he just knew how to capture people. Thank you so much for sharing these photos!

I love how he must have seen life in black and white...he really is a master of not only capturing the moment but of light as well. Great selections!
