Nina Leen

family photo. 1945. Dallas, Texas © Nina Leen/ Life Magazine
I'm obsessed with this photograph of my grandparents and great grandparents , shot only a few miles from where I sit now.  I love the layers of conversation, the intensity and knowing how the story ended. Turns out, composition and using the frame to it's fullest was a specialty of Life Magazine photographer, Nina Leen's. Check out more of her images here.
