That Life

This evening I watched a BBC4 documentary America in Pictures: The Story of Life Magazine, a story told by the photographer Rankin. They were the ones to coin the "photo essay" - the telling of a narrative with pictures and minimal words. As well as showing the public what was going on overseas, the importance of the magazine remains with the tales of ordinary Americans and the issues that effect them. After all a picture paints a thousand words.
