Life Magazine and the Power of Photography
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Through
January 16, 2023
From the Great
Depression to the Vietnam War, almost all the photographs
printed for consumption by the American public appeared in
illustrated magazines. Among them, Life
magazine—published weekly from 1936 to 1972—was both wildly popular
and visually revolutionary, with photographs arranged in
groundbreaking dramatic layouts known as photo-essays.
This exhibition takes a close look at the carefully selected
images found in the pages of Life,
in order to reveal how the magazine shaped conversations about war,
race, technology, national identity, and more in the
twentieth-century United States. An award-winning exhibition
catalogue, edited by Katherine A. Bussard and Kristen
Gresh, is available through the Museum Store. Details here.
Museum Store is sparkling! Find beautiful handblown glass
ornaments, ceramic platters with elegantly curved edges, delicate
jewelry, leather goods, puzzles and much more.
