Rothstein shot for LOOK Magazine in 1940 and, "upon returning from serving in World War II, was named the Director of Photography, a position he held until the magazine’s demise in 1971." As you can gather from this series, called "New York in the Summertime," he mostly covered social life around the city, photographing everyday happenings.
