LOOK

Look is usually mentioned in tandem with another magazine renowned for its photography: Life.* However, the comparison is really neither an accurate nor a fair one. Despite the fact that the two were probably the best of the photo magazines, Life in reality aspired to be a newsmagazine (albeit a photojournalistic one) published on a weekly basis, while Look, because of its biweekly publication, could not and did not regularly report news, but instead developed feature articles accompanied by text.
