    One thought on “The Best of LIFE”

    1. I don't normally go in for coffee-table photo books, there are just too many out there. Life Magazine, however, published from 1936-1972 encapsulates a majority of the era of photography. This book, with short captions and chapter headings, focuses on the visual summation of Life's themes.Two photos in the collection floored me. The first, on page 104, is of the body of a suicide who jumped from the Empire State building. You can see the photo and read the whole story here: codex99/photography/4 [...]

    2. Amazing collection of photographs from the heyday of LIFE magazine (mid-1930s through mid-1970s). There are some real classics in here, such as the sailor kissing the nurse in Times Square at the end of World War II. The collection provides a fascinating overview of American culture and world events during those four decades. Some of the images are hard to look at; for example, the naked Vietnamese girl fleeing a napalm attack. Photos like that always make me wonder why the photographer isn't co [...]

    3. This is another large hardcover 25lb historical picture book. But, this is a heavy hitting, unapologetic look at classic Americana like you can't genuinely find everywhere. I've seen some of the photos before but was surprised to realize that it was a TIME photographer who captured the oddly familiar photographs. This bit of kit didn't dodge the ugly or the bizarre, but just the opposite really. The only negative sanction i have gathered is how disappointing all the picture titles and according [...]

    4. Pictures tell a thousand words and this book tells a lot of US history between 1936 and 1972. Fun to read and to see the changes in culture and politics over that time. I remember Life Magazine as a child and every now and then would be a photo I remembered. It was enjoyable to linger over.

    5. This book had a number of interesting pictures. You don't even really need to read the text. 45 minutes is all you really need to see the entire book.

    6. An all-time favorite. Lots and lots of the most powerful photos ever published in LIFE magazine. Really hard to put down.
