Born on December 30, 1918, William Eugene Smith started off as a photojournalist. He told deep stories through his photos. After he graduated from Wichita North High school, he worked for the Wichita Eagle. He would take pictures for the newspaper for a while until he moved to New York City and began working for a different newspaper called Newsweek. Eventually he was fired for not using the camera the paper wanted, so he went to work for Life Magazine.
