The place where you grow up becomes a part of you forever, my home town Allahabad is no different for me. Recently had the chance to visit after a long time, meet with friends and go to one of my favourite places sangam ( where the rivers meet ). The morning glow made it mystical and my love for portrait stories continues ....... #leica #leicaportrait #travel #travelphotography #natgeo #natgeotravel #morning #portrait #bbc_travel #lifemagazine #condenastraveller #incredibleindia #allahabad #uttarpradesh #glow #life #india

#todayinhistory on November 23, 1936, the first issue of the pictorial magazine Life is published, featuring a cover photo of the Fort Peck Dam by Margaret Bourke-White. 🗞 Interesting fact: Life’s war coverage of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and numerous regional wars was consistently vivid, authentic, and moving. Gradually, the magazine began to admit more writing to its pages, carefully choosing its writers and text editors. Life ceased publication largely because the costs of preparing, printing, and mailing each issue outstripped its revenues from advertising. #lifemagazine #time #magazines #photography

On This Day in 1936 'Life' hits the stands

Vivid images bring 'Life' magazine to life. Originally a humor magazine, 'Life' is reconceived by new owner Henry Luce, founder of Time, as a magazine focused on photojournalism. 'Life' will be huge commercial success, with a circulation of 8 million at the peak of its popularity. #onthisday #lifemagazine #henryluce #timemagazine #photojournalism

🔹C’était il y a 81 ans… Le 23 novembre 1936, le grand patron de presse américain Henry Luce, également fondateur de « Time » et « Fortune », lance le 1er numéro de « Life Magazine ». Le slogan publicitaire qui accompagne le lancement du magazine révèle les ambitions de son fondateur : «Pour voir la vie, pour voir le monde, pour témoigner des grands événements... Pour découvrir des choses étonnantes, pour découvrir le monde, pour décrypter, enfin pour admirer et comprendre...». Source inépuisable de clichés remarquables, qui sont autant de témoignages de ce que fut la vie au XXème siècle, source d’inspiration aussi pour « Paris Match » qui sera créé en 1949, « Life Magazine » terminera sa vie de papier en 2007 pour goûter aux plaisirs du support numérique. 🔹On this day in 1936, Henry Robinson Luce launched « Life », a picture magazine of politics, culture and society, in order “to see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things — machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see man’s work — his paintings, towers and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to; the women that men love and many children; to see and take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed...”. 71 years and thousands of photos that witness to how life was in the 20th century later, in 2007, “Life” disappears as a magazine but survives as a Website.🔹#1936 #life #lifemagazine #henryluce #parismatch #pictures #press #magazine #usa #20thcentury #kennedy #generaldegaulle #marilynmonroe #gandhi #churchill #apollo11 #anniversaire #remember #souvenir #histoire #history #nostalgie #retro #anecdote #thisdayinhistory #andrecastelot #alaindecaux #franckferrand #acdh #flashhisto

LIFE magazine was first published on this day in 1936, with Margaret Bourke-White’s image of the Fort Peck Dam making the cover.
Meticulous yet mighty, the image set a precedent for the wealth of exceptional photography produced across eight decades of the title.
