9780810992870: Men of WWII: Fighting Men at Ease

In the years following World War II, images of comradeship, particularly of men being physically close, largely disappeared from the public record. But, as the stunning photographs from the original "At Ease" attest, ordinary American men in the extraordinary circumstances of World War II were affectionate, winsome and playful - disarmingly innocent in a time of cataclysmic peril. This book provides even more of these rarely-seen photos of enlisted men. Led by photography giant Captain Edward J. Steichen, the U.S. Naval Aviation Photographic Unit was organised during the war to record the daily experiences of Navy men all over the world and provide newspapers and magazines with images to promote the American cause. The unit's photographers, which included Wayne Miller, Horace Bristol, Victor Jorgensen and Barrett Gallagher, took thousands of pictures of soldiers as they relaxed, trained, prepared for the next battle and waited. This book, like the original "At Ease", brings together more than 150 of those photographs, culled from the National Archives, including many that have never before been published. Whereas World War II imagery tends to be dominated by combat photography and monumental depictions of weaponry, these photographs offer a rare, intimate look at the Navy men themselves.

Descrizione libro Harry N. Abrams, New York USA, 2007. Hard Cover. Condizione libro: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. First Edition. 160 pages, The long awaited follow up to the original At Ease presents 160 new, never before published photographs of WWII Navy men. These photos are not the combat photography we're so accustomed to seeing; here are disarmingly winsome and playful pictures of sailors and soldiers at leisure, displaying an innocent affection for each other that is practically unthinkable today. This was a time when men had no reservations about showing their devotion to their comrades through physical contact, and the included photographs are truly snapshots of a lost era. This volume includes photos from the National Archives by Edward J. Steichen, Wayne Miller, Horace Bristol, Victor Jorgensen, Barrett Gallagher, and many others. Codice libro della libreria 333786
