Life magazine was an American periodical that ran weekly from 1883 to 1972. Time founder Henry Luce bought the magazine in 1936 and shifted its focus to a news magazine with a strong emphasis on photojournalism. It became the first all photography news magazine with work by photographers like Alfred Eisenstaedt, Margaret Bourke-White, and Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Life was published weekly until 1972, as special issues until 1978, and then monthly from 1978 to 2002. It now exists as a website that features classic and unpublished photos from LIFE magazine.
