Alfred Eisenstaedt: Couples in Penn Station sharing farewell kisses before soldiers ships off to war during WWII, 1943, NY.
Eisenstaedt when speaking of the time he photographed American soldiers saying farewell to their wives and sweethearts in 1944 on assignment for Life: “I just kept motionless like a statue.” he said. “They never saw me clicking away. For the kind of photography I do, one has to be very unobtrusive and to blend in with the crowd.”
