Beginning in 1936, LIFE was the first magazine to focus on photojournalism, revolutionizing our culture by opening windows to the world and by becoming a weekly custom throughout American households, and also abroad. For the next several decades, LIFE continued to attract the greatest photographers of the era. The book, The Great LIFE Photographers, is a compilation of 600 photographs by 100 of the most influential photographers of the 20th Century, and it is a tribute to such pioneer photographers as Margaret Bourke-White, Ralph Morse and Alfred Eisenstaedt.
