"To see life, to see the world"―Henry Luce(The founder of 'Time', 'Fortune' and 'Life')
The magazine,'LIFE' was first founded in 1883.
In 1936, however, Henry Luce, the founder of 'Time' magazine, turned it into a weekly magazine with a heavy emphasis on photojournalism. And it immediately became 'the most successful LIFE' with historical sales records in 3 years after having re-founded.
The great photographers of the 20th century have featured on the cover of LIFE, such as Alfred Eisenstaedt, W. Eugene Smith, Robert Capa and Yousuf Karsh. With the advent of this special magazine, photographs, which had been regarded as ancillary part in the journal, started to take an important role on photojournalism. The magazine has been building its own identity by running diverse spectrum of high quality photos on it. People equated LIFE with the photos ran on it and the photos themselves became a history showing the glory days of the magazine. Though the magazine was past its prime, the photos on it still meet people all around the world in a form of the photo exhibition, 'Life'.
Now, the turn has come to Daegu at last!!
The exhibition is organized to reflect three key themes, "People”, “Moments” and “Life”.
The people section carries images of various iconic figures, including Pablo Picasso, Audrey Hepburn, Charlie Chaplin, Leonard Bernstein, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson.
The moments section consists of the images from World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War and Apollo 11, the spacecraft that landed the first humans on the Moon.
In this exhibition, you will meet the most memorable moments in human history since LIFE magazine founded.
