W. Eugene Smith

W. Eugene Smith is regarded as one of the foremost photojournalists of his generation. He is best known for his photo essays in Life magazine throughout the 1940s and 1950s. Smith was also a combat photojournalist in World War II, and was seriously wounded during the battle for Okinawa. Upon returning to the United States and resuming his career after a long convalescence, Smith’s photographic subjects shifted focus from hard news to everyday life. He also taught a photojournalism class at the New School for Social Research in New York City.
