Joseph Goebbels the moment he realized his photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt was a Jew. 1933
”“He looked at me with hateful eyes and waited for me to wither. But I didn’t wither. If I have a camera in my hand, I don’t know fear.” - Alfred Eisenstaed
The first ever photographs of lightning shot by amateur photographer William N. Jennings between 1885 and 1890
I can’t stop loving them.
An East German soldier helping a boy cross the newly formed ‘Berlin Wall,’ 1961.
From what is known, the photograph was taken the day the emerging Wall was put up in August 1961 and the boy was found on the opposite side of the wall from his family. Despite given orders by the East German government to let no one pass, the soldier helped the boy through the barbwire. Near the exact time this photo was taken, it was said that the soldier was seen by his superior officer who immediately detached the soldier from his unit.
Concerning the fate of the soldier, most descriptions that come with photograph say that “no one knows what became of him.”
Fantastic double exposures by Florian Imgrund
Florian Imgrund is a German photographer whose works are most of the time in black and white and with a very interesting atmosphere. He photographs with an analog camera and notably makes stunning double exposed photographs. You can see some example in this article. The result is really brilliant. Visit his portfolio, his Flickr and his Facebook page to view more works.
