silhouette

John Morden made this photo for  Instagram.

Toronto. This famous photographer was born in Germany and emigrated to the USA in 1935, prior to the second war to join LIFE magazine. He had already made a name in Europe before moving with his family to America. His name… Alfred Eisenstaedt.

In the silhouette, Eisenstaedt is holding his IIIf Leica. It is part of a series on famous photographers and their cameras that we posted on our Instagram site.

My thanks to John Morden for sharing this image with me. He originally created it for our Instagram guru, Celio Barreto, who found the series to be very popular.
