Eleven fearless workmen, casually perched hundreds of feet above New York’s streets, were photographed in 1932 by the daring Charles C. Ebbets (1905-1978) during the construction of Rockefeller Center. Snapped from the 69th floor of the GE Building, Ebbet’s definitively dizzying shot, published in the New York Herald Tribune, was among his 300 nationally published works. The daredevil Ebbets also worked as a pilot, auto racer, wrestler and hunter, and was prizefighter Jack Dempsey’s official staff photographer.
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.
