Eisenstaedt and colleagues like Carl Mydans, Andreas Feininger, Cornell Capa, Gordon Parks, Dmitri Kessel, and thirty-eight other Life photographers interviewed here were practicing journalism in fact, but the results often turned out to be art. In one hundred hours of taped conversations, they confided their ambitions, anxieties, and accomplishments to their friend and peer John Loengard, Life's most distinguished contemporary photo essayist. These real-life stories of the adventures and mishaps of staff photographers - from World War II in Europe and the Pacific to the tumultuous events of the 1950s through the 197Os - delineate the golden era of photojournalism.
