As the saying goes in photojournalism circles, LIFE isn't what it used to 
be. And it neve was.

Though there is some truth in that staement, I can only remember 
throughout the 60s how I learned an awful lot about the world in the pages 
of LIFE, LOOK, and National Geographic. Nowadays, we have one fewer outlet 
in the U.S. other than National Geographic, that takes photojouralism 

I'd love to see what serious stuff is being done in Europe.
