Lot description
A protégée of Roy Stryker at the U.S. Office of War Information, and subsequently at Standard Oil, Esther Bubley was a preeminent freelance photographer depicting the post-WWII reality of everyday life. Bubley's photographs are of cultural as well as artistic interest. Her photo-essays explore the era's American stereotypes including the troubled child, harried housewife, and enterprising farm family. Her works appeared in some of the nation’s most notable magazines including “Life.” Her photographs covered a wide range of topics from mental illness and health care to celebrities and beauty queens. However, the beauty in her works is also marked with a haunted and lonely realism. Bubley was one of the first women to successfully support herself working as a freelance photographer for the major magazines
