Biography: photojournalist Yale Joel


Yale Joel (1919 – 2006) began his career as a professional photographer when he was 19 years old, served as a combat photographer during World War II, and several years later became a member of the famous LIFE magazine photography staff. Working out of the LIFE bureaus in Washington, Paris, Boston and New York, he established an early reputation as a photographer of the “impossible,” with his ability to create camera perspectives the ordinary eye normally cannot see. At the same time, his rapport with people and the capacity to capture them on film, earned him an equally distinguished reputation.
