Ester Bubley

April 1943. Washington, D.C. "Girl sitting alone in the Sea Grill waiting for a pickup. 'I come in here pretty often, sometimes alone, mostly with another girl, we drink beer, and talk, and of course we keep our eyes open -- you'd be surprised at how often nice lonesome soldiers ask Sue, the waitress, to introduce them to us.' " Medium-format nitrate negative by Esther Bubley for the OWI.  (note face in window above woman's head)

The Power of the 8-by-10 Film Camera

In this weekend’s magazine, Lizzy Goodman writes about Gaslight Anthem, a band from New Jersey, on the occasion of its new release this week. To illustrate Goodman’s story, George Tice photographed the band using a large-format, 8-by-10 film camera. Tice speaks about his love for his camera, which he bought new in 1969, in a video on our Web site.
