Where there was war, where there was celebration, where there was history in the making, LIFE magazine’s photographers were there. The LIFE Archive is a stunning visual record of the history of the 20th century, and now, a curated collection of iconic photographs is available for purchase in the TIME Shop for a limited time only.
There are images of pure joy—from Alfred Eisenstaedt’s photos of childhood glee frozen in time to Gjon Mili’s portrait of dancers mid-air—and images of despair and disappointment—from John Dominis’ portrait of Mickey Mantle reckoning with the decline of his athletic dominance to Eisenstaedt’s picture of a wartime farewell. There are, as LIFE captured so well, snapshots of new frontiers—in aviation, at the movies and amid the landscape of the American West—and quiet revelries on the beauty of Paris the resilience of the human spirit.
