Photographs have shaped our nation’s history, and since 1883 LIFE magazine has been at the forefront of it all. LIFE was the first news magazine dedicated to photos, and it created many of our culture’s iconic images, from that sailor kissing a nurse on the streets of New York City on VJ Day to our favorite pictures of Muhammad Ali. The magazine has been reborn as a website, and it is giving visitors access to all the classics as well as never-before published pictures. LIFE has also teamed up with Getty Images to bring you over 3,000 new images a day. In true LIFE style, the day’s news is brought to you in a series of telling images, with short captions. Some stories are best told through words, but some can only be captured with a camera and a skilled photographer’s hand. Life is happening before your eyes; take a look.
