Eisenstaedt, Alfred (American photographer, 1898-1995)

Note: Eisenstaedt was only 13 years old when he began taking photographs, and began practicing photography as a hobby. His first major assignment was photographing Thomas Mann receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1929. During those years he became famous for his portraits, among them, Marlene Dietrich, George Bernard Shaw, Hitler, and Mussolini. Eisenstaedt came to America in 1935 and began working for "Harper's Bazaar," "Vogue," and "Town and County" magazines. He also did photojournalist work for "Life" magazine up until 1972. His photograph "V-Day," a snapshot of a soldier passionately kissing a young woman is among one of the most famous images of World War II.
