For decades, William Eugene Smith (1918-78) shaped American reportage photography. His style was defined not just by technical perfection, but also by his emotional approach to the themes he portrayed in his photographs. Despite seeing himself as a neutral observer, with the highest regard for the ethics of photojournalism, his viewpoint was never cold or that of a voyeur – instead, his images were always full of compassion and empathy. Smith photographed for publications such as Life, Coliers, Harper's Bazaar and The New York Times.
