ABOUT

Robert Adams is a photographer who has documented the extent and the limits of our damage to the American West, recording there, in over fifty books of pictures, both reasons to despair and to hope. “The goal,” he has said, “is to face facts but to find a basis for hope. To try for alchemy.”

Alfred Eisenstaedt

1898 – 1995

ABOUT

Born in West Prussia, Alfred Eisenstaedt was inseparable from his camera from the moment his uncle gave him one. He began his photographic career in 1928 in Berlin at Pacific and Atlantic Photos, soon to become part of the Associated Press. Capturing such key figures as Hitler and Mussolini at their first meeting, through the agency, he was published in the major European magazines of the time. In 1935, he moved to New York, where he became one of LIFE magazine’s four founding photographers, his images appearing on more than 80 covers over the next six decades. An extremely influential photographer, Eisenstaedt has been called the “Father of Photojournalism.”
