Spiro Agnew by Alfred Eisenstaedt
My personal favourite LIFE cover by Alfred "Eisie" Eisenstaedt.
Alfred Eisenstaedt (December 6, 1898-August 24, 1995).

In 1935, a 37-year-old Alfred Eisenstaedt emigrated to the United States--narrowly escaping the Holocaust in Europe--and landed a job as one of the first staff photographers at LIFE magazine.
He would become one of the most important photographers in America--indeed, the father of photojournalism.
Eisie--as his friends called him--applied a simple credo to taking pictures: "It's more important to click with people than to click the shutter."
The links below will tell you a little more about the great man Eisenstaedt, and his love of Rolleiflex and Leica cameras;
