W. Eugene Smith - Country Doctor

(Pat David) #1

This was brought back to my attention via a reddit thread about a user asking what it means to “Tell a story” with their photographs.

The link was to a Life photo essay by W. Eugene Smith in 1948 title Country Doctor. It’s a great photo essay and a unique look at a slice of American life over 50 years ago (as well as one of the earliest photo-essays). The entire set is on the Time website and worth a look.
