4.9.10 Nabbing Time with Eisenstaedt

Alfred Eisenstaedt, famous photographer of the iconic V.J Day photo, nabs a moment in time with the above image. The photograph, captured in Paris in 1963 and entitled "Children at Puppet Theatre," portrays the reactions of children at a show; the facial expressions are comical to say the least.

Says Eisenstaedt about the photo, "It took a long time to get the angle I liked, but the best picture is the one I took at the climax of the action. It carries all the excitement of the children screaming, "The dragon is slain!" Very often this sort of thing is only a momentary vision, my brain does not register, only my eyes and finger react. Click."
