Women photographers of LIFE Magazine

Share:

The New York Historical Society celebrates the contribution of women photojournalists to America’s legendary LIFE magazine. The showcase of over 70 images is on display from 28 June to 6 October 2019.

LIFE was the first magazine dedicated to telling stories through photographs rather than text. The camera was not merely a tool to record events, but also a means of delivering a commentary. During the magazine’s golden age, from the late 1930s to the early 1970s, only a very small number of female photographers worked for LIFE as full-time or semi-permanent members of staff.

The exhibition ‘LIFE: Six Women Photographers’ draws our attention to some of these photojournalists, and illustrates how they contributed to the publication’s profound influence on the American identity. Featuring more than 70 prints, the showcase presents outstanding works by Margaret Bourke-White, Hansel Mieth, Marie Hansen, Martha Holmes, Nina Leen and Lisa Larsen.
