Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin And Kreuzberg
This legendary picture of Marlene Dietrich was made by a German-American photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt who left Berlin to escape the Nazis and went on to become one of the best and the most treasured masters of the camera on the other side of the Atlantic.
His probably best known work and one of the most recognised images in the world is “Times Square Kiss” from 1945 made by Eisenstaedt when New York was celebrating the end of the 2nd World War.
The photographer himself managed to escape from Berlin on time thanks to his international connections made thanks to plenty of jobs for American and British magazines.
Here are several other images by Alfred Eisenstaedt from the time before and after the war:
