Yale Joel

Paris in the fog

Yale Joel, an American photo journalist, began his career at the age of 19 while serving as a combat photographer during World War II.  Several years later he became a staff photographer for Life Magazine working in their Washington, Paris, Boston and New York bureaus.  It is during this time that he became famous for his reputation of photographing the "impossible", capturing perspectives that the normal eye could not see.  These oldies but goodies collected here are just a few of those taken during his time in Paris.
