Alfred T. Palmer
Alfred T. Palmer was known for his Kodachrome photographs of Americans who, during World War II, participated in the war effort. Most photos were in black & white, but he also experimented in Kodachrome. Theatrical lighting characterize these photos that glorify the men, women, and machinery of this era.
In the 1920s and 30s Palmer was hired to photograph shipping lines. Once World War II started, he was employed by the Farm Security Administration / Office for Emergency Management. Later, he was a staff photographer for National Geographic.
