Short biography
Alfred Eisenstaedt was born into a Jewish family that moved to Berlin in 1906. After serving in the Germany Army during World War I, he began taking photos as a freelancer and had enough success to become a full-time professional photographer by 1929.  Fleeing the Nazis in 1935, Eisenstaedt emigrated to the United States. He achieved international fame as a master photojournalist, largely for his work for Life magazine from 1936 to 1972.
