Eisenstaedt & Hemingway

In 1952, LIFE sent legendary photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt to Cuba to shoot author Ernest Hemingway. The magazine needed photos to run alongside a new novella that would run in LIFE before it was published in book format. That book was “The Old Man and the Sea,” and the issue of LIFE where it was first printed went on to sell 5.3 million copies in two days.

dIGITAL EYEs

Celebrated this Sunday afternoon in Cambridge at Deli on the Corner in Victoria Street – the exhibition opening of dIGITAL EYEs – the work of six Cambridge photographers. Characterful and colourful the Deli on the Corner café – one of Cambridge’s most popular – is home to much visual delight. Above photographer and Cambridge Edition editor Ann Huston – one of the six – with her work – “Flying High” – a photograph taken during Armistice in Cambridge last year. Ann tells me the plane is a Pitts S2S Special piloted by Noel Cruse.
