As you interact with this Web site, consider the words of LIFE's founding editor, Henry Luce. His description of the magazine's mission, written in 1936, resonates more than half a century later:
To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things - machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see man's work -- his paintings, towers and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to; the women men love and many children; to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed". (Excerpt from www.life.com, ~Time Inc., 2002)
