LIFE Photographers, Andreas Feininger And John Florea
More truly accomplished photographers today make their debuts in the continuation of the LIFE Magazine Photo Archive here at This-Old-Jeep.com. Feininger was best known for his scientific still lives and architectural photography, but in March 1944 he shot along the assembly lines of what I would assume to be Willys-Overland of workers churning out the famous MB. Florea was a talented war correspondent as well with the Marines and Navy in the South Pacific before going into television directing in Los Angeles. He directed from the 50’s up to the 80’s and did episodes of ChiPs, The Dukes of Hazzard and MacGuyver. (Bet you never thought that I’d mention The Dukes of Hazzard here, outside of Daisy’s Golden Eagle...) But before that he did alot of spectacular photography. Thanks for the patience yesterday and come back tomorrow. Still trying to work out the download size problem in earlier albums but these seem to be working. I have also found even more photos, but they’ll have to wait until the very end. More tomorrow and check out today's entries here!
