I went to Port de Sóller yesterday, trying to recapture a street scene that had been photographed in 1962 by Alfred Eisenstaedt, and later published by Life Magazine. Alfred Eisenstaedt (1898-1995) was a German-American photographer and photojournalist. He is renowned for his candid photographs, frequently made using various models of a 35mm Leica rangefinder camera. I have been an avid admirer of Mr. Eisenstaedt’s work for the last 40 years.
The photo (top) was taken in Port de Sóller, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: November 1st, 2010. The time was 16:58:07. The photo (bottom) was borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of Life Magazine. It was taken in Port de Sóller, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain, by Alfred Eisenstaedt. The date: March, 1962.
