Alfred Eisenstaedt (1898-1995) began his photographic career in Berlin in 1929. Six years later he emigrated to the United States, where he joined the prepublication staff of LIFE magazine. In his 60 years with LIFE, he completed over 2,500 assignments and 86 covers. His work was the subject of 13 books. Eisenstaedt received the National Medal of Arts in November 1989 for extraordinary photographs that document the tragedies and triumphs he has witnessed over a lifetime. In 1998, LIFE magazine established the annual Alfred Eisenstaedt Awards to celebrate the best photographers each year in American magazines. A special Eisie awards issue of LIFE will be published in late March 1999 bringing renewed attention to Eisenstaedt
