Martin Munkacsi

Martin Munkacsi, born in Koloszvár, Hungary in 1896, published his first sports photos in 1921 and in 1927 moved to Berlin, where he worked for Berliner Illustrirte Zeitung, Koralle, Uhu, Die Dame, Vu, Modern Photography and other international magazines. By the time he immigrated to the USA in 1934, he had revolutionized fashion photography. He worked under contract for Harper’s Bazaar, published works in Life to great acclaim and photographed the influential series “How Americans Live” for Ladies’ Home Journal. Munkacsi also worked as an advertising photographer and as a camera man for film productions. Largely forgotten, he died in New York in 1963.
