Life magazine launches photo exhibition

The exhibition by Life magazine is set to showcase the best of the magazine’s photos and is on display at London’s Atlas Gallery from the end of November.

The exhibition, officially titled LIFE: Selected Prints from the LIFE Magazine Collection (1936-2000), consists of photographs commemorating the iconic magazine, which ran for more than 60 years. The work of influential photographers, such as Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, John Dominis, John Loengard, Nina Leen, J R Eyerman, Andreas Feininger and Joe Rosenthal, whose work shaped modern photojournalism, will be among the photos on show.

Over the course of its run, Life commissioned more than 10 million photographs, capturing all types of subject matter. The photographs being shown in the exhibition have been specially selected and represent the diversity of the Life collection.
