Alfred Eisenstaedt
American, 1898–1995

Claiming, “it’s more important to click with people than to click the shutter,” Alfred Eisenstaedt defined the practice of photojournalism as one of its pioneering practitioners, from the years leading up to World War II to the closing decade of the 20th century. He took his first photograph at 29, one of more than a million he would take over the course of his career. In 1935, he emigrated to New York and was hired by LIFE Magazine as one of its first staff photographers. Using a 35mm camera, Eisenstaedt captured world leaders, celebrities, artists, and everyday people and scenes with decision and tenderness. Among his most iconic images is VJ Day in Times Square (1945), the passionate kiss known worldwide between a sailor and a woman, who arches back, surrendering to his embrace in the heart of Times Square.
