Pa’i ki’i Imagery

November 18, 2008

Life By Google

Back in the day before the Boob Tube. There were two ways to see what was going on in the world. Watching travelogues and news shorts at the local movie theater. Occasionally, TCM will show them between movies. The other way was the photo journalism in Life Magazine. Arthur Rothstein, Dorothea Lange, Alfred Eisenstaedt, and Frank Capra are well known for their photographic work in Life.

Now you can access the Life Magazine archives thru Google. If you consider this the high tech imaging platform of it’s day, it’s a great resource to study composition.
