Lot description
Alfred Eisenstaedt (1898 – 1995) was an photographer known for his work for LIFE Magazine, which he joined as one of the first four staff photographers in 1935. Eisenstaedt was born and raised in Germany. He was a self-taught photographer with clear natural talent for the photojournalistic style. He began his photography career in 1927 working for the Berliner Tageblatt, where he learned to photograph in smaller format. From 1925 to 1935, he worked for a number of other organizations, including the Pacific and Atlantic Picture Agency and the Associated Press, as a freelance photographer.

Eisenstaedt emigrated to the United States in 1935. He soon got hired as a photographer at Life magazine where he worked until 1972. Eisenstaedt died at his tiny cottage in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts at the age of 96.

Iconic photographs by Eisenstaedt, such as his 1945 snapshot of an American sailor kissing his girlfriend in Times Square, or the 1928 image of a menswear-clad Marlene Dietrich, are ubiquitous to this day.
