About the artist
By the early 1930s, his remarkable work garnered attention, leading to a contract in 1932 with the burgeoning Rockefeller Center. Tasked with publicizing the immense construction project amid post-depression difficulties, he did just that, producing a series of celebrated images. Among them, his iconic shot of workmen lunching on a beam high above Manhattan, an enduring symbol of ordinary men in extraordinary situations, sealed his place in the annals of 20th-century American photography.
