Biography: Born in Nashville, photographer Ed Clark began working for The Tennessean Newspaper. Life Magazine made him a stringer in 1936. His famous 1942 photo of Alvin York registering for the draft brought an official job offer, but he refused to leave Nashville as he felt it was a better place to raise his young sons. In 1945, he agreed to be temporarily assigned to the Paris offices and shot a series of photos of that city, including this image. During his career working for Life and several other magazines, he captured images of racial discrimination, Hollywood celebrities, and several presidents. Condition: Mounted to board.
