Life magazine reborn online

Away from all the doom and gloom of the markets some really good news...one of our favourite magazines Life is to be reborn.

The photojournalism magazine closed in 2000, is to gain a new lease of life on the web as a massive photo archive thanks to a deal with Getty Images.

Life.com will allow access to millions of archived photographs from the magazine, best known for its images of presidents, wars and Hollywood celebrities from the 40s, 50s and 60s. It was published from 1936 until 2000.

Life.com will launch early next year. Searching and viewing images on the website will be free.
