A protégée of Roy Stryker at the U.S. Office of War Information and subsequently at Standard Oil Company, Esther Bubley (1921–1998) was a preeminent freelance photographer during the “Golden Age” of American photojournalism, from 1945 to 1965. At a time when most post–war American women were anchored by home and family, Bubley was a thriving professional, traveling throughout the world. This image of a young boy peeking from behind grown men to watch a horse race comes from a series Bubley undertook in 1962, when she went on assignment to Ireland for The Lamp magazine to document the growing industrial economy of the country.
