LIFE (1883 - 2007)
The first incarnation of LIFE came out in 1883, before it ceased to be more than a century later. LIFE became a front-row seat to just that—life in America and beyond. With notable covers like the nurse in a sailor’s arms and wartime photos straight from the front lines, LIFE told stories through brilliant photography and controversial articles.
Their roster of famous artists, writers, and photographers included Robert Capa, Ernest Hemingway, and Norman Rockwell, to name a few. After funding was cut, several more incarnations of the magazine made their rounds until April 20, 2007, when LIFE ended its print editions and lived solely online.
