Esther Bubley

Esther Bubley, born two years after the end of World War I, spent the beginning of her career photographing American life during World War II. Her work is full of compassionate, intimate images that capture the nuances of her subjects and the complexities of everyday life.  As a schoolgirl, Bubley became enamored with Life Magazine and in 1951 she began freelancing for the iconic organization, contributing several cover stories and dozens of photo essays. Her dedication to capturing life’s ordinary, and deeply relatable, moments helped her to become one of the first women to successfully support herself with a freelance career in photojournalism.
