LIFE MAGAZINE - THREE PIONEER PHOTOGRAPHERS: Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Carl Mydans

Santa Fe--Monroe Gallery of Photography, 112 Don Gaspar, is pleased to announce the exhibition: LIFE MAGAZINE - THREE PIONEER PHOTOGRAPHERS: Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Carl Mydans. The exhibition opens with a public reception on April 18, and will continue through June 29. Featured in the exhibition are rare and historically significant photographs, such as Bourke-White’s photograph from the very first issue of LIFE magazine. Also included are several vintage photographs – the actual prints used for LIFE magazine stories, with important archive information inscribed and stamped on the backside of each photograph. The work of these pioneering LIFE magazine photographers is as much a history of American photojournalism as it is a history of the changing face of the latter part of the Twentieth Century. On the pages of LIFE, through the images captured by these masters, the eyes of a nation were opened as never before to a changing world. It is unlikely that anyone could have lived during the last 50 years without having been exposed to the images of Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, and Carl Mydans.
