Description:
Bradley Smith, born in 1910, began working as a photographer for Life magazine in the 1940s. He also worked as a freelance photographer for several other publications, including Time, The Saturday Evening Post, American Heritage, and Vogue. Considered one of the earliest photojournalists, Smith also wrote and illustrated 23 books covering a wide range of topics from erotica to wildlife to foreign countries. In 1944, Smith formed the American Society of Magazine Photographers, or ASMP, an organization created to help photographers retain rights to their own work.
