Life Magazine

4 April 2015
A study of the great photojournalist magazine, “Life”.

This paper explores the changes in American culture and reading habits that led to the demise of “Life” magazine. The author explores how the culture outgrew the medium of weekly publications and demonstrates Life Magazine’s place in today’s mass media society.
“Life magazine changed the way that the world looked at itself.
And then, the world having been changed, it looked elsewhere and the magazine, that served as a weekly pictorial glossy from 193672, ended its reign as one of the most important and influential periodicals of the 20th century. Founded by Time publisher Henry Luce, the magazine helped to introduce to the world the importance of photography to the telling of news stories. Life employed some of the greatest photojournalists of the 1930s through 1960s, and their superb renditions of the life of the world during those decades ensured the magazine’s prestige and dominance.”
