Magnum Photos : W. Eugene Smith


For the first time ever, the estate of W. Eugene Smith is offering modern prints of his most famous images. Born in 1918 in Wichita, Kansas, Smith became a pioneer of photojournalism and master of the photographic essay. Beginning with his powerful shots of the Pacific invasion during World War II, Smith forged an impressive career at LIFE magazine, which included classic photo essays like Country Doctor, Nurse Midwife, and Spanish Village. After leaving LIFE, Smith pursued his acclaimed freelance work on projects such as Pittsburgh, the Jazz Loft, and ultimately Minamata, the story of which is now in release as a major feature film.
