THE EYE OF EISENSTAEDT



Major exhibition celebrates career and life of legendary photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt (1898-1995)

Santa Fe - Monroe Gallery of Photography, 112 Don Gaspar, is pleased to announce: "THE EYE OF EISENSTAEDT", a major exhibition celebrating the career and life of the legendary photographer. The exhibition opens on July 7 and will continue through September 23.

The exhibition of more than 60 photographs features numerous classic images, several little-known gems, and never-before-exhibited photographs that are sure to surprise and intrigue. Included are historic vintage photographs - the actual prints used for LIFE magazine stories, with important archive information inscribed and stamped on the back of each photograph.

Renowned as the father of modern photojournalism, Alfred Eisenstaedt's career as a preeminent photojournalist spanned eight decades. As one of the four original staff photographers for LIFE, "Eisie" covered over 2,500 assignments and created 92 covers for the magazine. Acknowledged as one of the most published photojournalists in the world, he took photographs at the first meeting of Hitler and Mussolini, of Albert Einstein teaching at Princeton, Churchill's campaign and re-election, children at a puppet theater in Paris, Marilyn Monroe at home, and hundreds of other significant people and events around the world.

It is unlikely that anyone could have lived during the last 75 years without having been exposed to the photographs of Alfred Eisenstaedt. "Eisie" worked almost ceaselessly until his death in August, 1995 at the age of 96, even photographing President Clinton and Family in 1993.
