Film: Alfred Eisenstaedt: Photographer
In this Emmy-award-winning documentary, famed documentary photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt, featured in the current exhibition The Art of Caring: A Look at Life through Photography, returns to his German homeland for the first time since 1935. While on assignment, he re-establishes his roots and photographs it with fresh eyes for his tenth and possibly most important book, Eisenstaedt: Germany. Filmed with Eisenstaedt’s cooperation, the photographer at the height of his Life magazine career, the artist tells all about photography, Hitler, Hollywood, the 1950s and more.
