A nap is a death-defying acrobatic feat for the workmen casually draped across an I-beam above the New York streets. This classic photo by Charles C. Ebbets (1905-1978) chronicles the construction of Rockefeller Center in 1932, Ebbets shot the vertigo-resistant workers from the 69th floor of the GE Building. The adventurous photographer also worked as a pilot, auto racer, wrestler and hunter. His photographic record of American history from the 1920s through the 1970s, encompassing over 300 photos, has been published in countless magazines across the country.
Death-defying photographer, Charles Ebbets (1905-1978) was as fearless as the vertigo-resistant construction workers he photographed. Casually dangling on the I-beams of New York skyscrapers, the workers were immortalized in a series of nearly 300 dizzying shots published in the New York Herald Tribune. His photography epitomized the American spirit of risk-taking bravery and ingenuity that was behind building New York into a world class city. Ebbets, a daring photographer, also worked as a pilot, auto racer, wrestler and a hunter, while also working as the official photographer for prizefighter Jack Dempsey.
