Palaces, pomp and ceremony. Tombs, treasure and ritual. These are the stuff of ancient Egypt. We know much of the exalted and their role, but what of those who designed the fabulous treasures and built the breathtaking monuments?

1: Alfred Eisenstaedt
This is the first in a series of six conversations With some of the grand old master photographers of this century.
Alfred Eisenstaedt , now 85 years old, has been called the father of photo-journalism, the man who invented the candid camera. During the 60 years of his photographic life, first in his native Germany and later in America, he has photographed more famous people than any other photographer. No fewer than 90 covers of Life magazine have carried his pictures. But the cold statistics say little about the formidable record of his work. It is a testimony of events and people who shaped much of our present life. Talking in his New York office to Peter Adam , he picks out a few from the vast number of portraits of writers, musicians, film stars and politicians. They range from Richard Strauss and Toscanini to Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe , from Churchill and Shaw to Hitler and Thomas Mann. Many people are familiar with his most famous pictures, but few know the face of the man who took them.
