Awesome photograph of men fixing the 776-foot-long LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin in mid-air while on a transatlantic trip from Europe to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
German photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt—one of the greatest artists in the history of the medium—used his Leica to take this stunning photo of a crew repairing the Graf Zeppelin in mid-air, after a storm in the middle of the Atlantic damaged the airship's skin en route to Rio de Janeiro in 1934. It looks so surreal—like a Magritte painting.
If you don't know Eisenstaedt, maybe you know another one of his photographs, taken during the celebrations of V-J Day, when victory was declared over Japan at the end of World War II.
