life:

Bob Gruen is the foremost photographer of rock, documenting the art form’s evolution for over 40 years, from the early years of musicians like Bob Dylan and Ike and Tina Turner to the heyday of the seminal music club CBGB to the present-day performances of bands like Green Day. He became John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s personal photographer, and snapped arguably the most famous picture of the former Beatle.

“The thing about Bob is that he’s always really loved the music and really enjoys going places,” says friend and frequent subject Debbie Harry, who wrote the foreword.

Many of Gruen’s best photos from his decades as a rock photographer are collected in his new book, Rock Seenand LIFE has a preview of the book here.

August 12, 1911 - Boys working as “cutters” in a canning company, Eastport, Maine

Photograph by Lewis Hine for the National Child Labor Committee.  

The original caption indicates that several of the boys have had fingers cut and earn only about $1.00 a day.   

This photo comes from Maine, where the current governor is trying to loosen child labor laws, a rather sad coincidence.

life:

In this special issue, LIFE.com looks at 20 legendary figures — in the arts, politics, science and sports — who have appeared in the pages of LIFE magazine.

Their status as legends was in no small part the result of personal struggles against prejudice or poverty or whatever their peers and rivals warned were the absolute limits of human potential. In the end, it’s that tenacity in the face of doubt and rejection; the drive to accomplish something breathlessly new something that changes the way we live, think and dream — that we honor and remember.

Pictured: Margaret Bourke-White logged a staggering number of firsts. As a pioneering photojournalist, she was among the first staff photographers hired at LIFE and she took its first cover photo. (read more here)
