Leonard McCombe fue un fotoperiodista Inglés que en 1964, a su paso por Uruguay, nos regaló más de 600 imágenes.

Nació en la Isla de Man, en el pueblo de Port Erin en 1923. En 1939 estuvo en la escena cuando el Pabellón de Leslie en Port Erin se quemó hasta los cimientos y capturó el momento con su cámara. Las imágenes aparecieron en la portada del diario "Isle of Man Examiner". Más tarde, The Examiner afirmó haber lanzado su carrera como fotógrafo profesional. A la edad de 16 años, Leonard dejó la escuela y se convirtió en el fotógrafo oficial del campo de internación de Rushen de los Aliados.

En 1943 dejó la isla y se convirtió en fotógrafo de Picture Post, donde realizó muchas asignaciones a Francia y Alemania para registrar el frente de guerra. En 1948, los resultados de su trabajo fueron publicados en Alemania por Atlantis Verlag "Menschen Eileiden Geschichte" (Humans Suffering History) con el subtítulo "The Face of Europe from the Thames up to Weichsel 1943-1946".

McCombe se mudó a Estados Unidos en 1945 y obtuvo la ciudadanía en 1953 mientras trabajaba como fotógrafo para la revista Life. Tomó muchas fotografías intrigantes que documentan la América de los años 50 y 60. Una de sus asignaciones más influyentes involucró trabajar con vaqueros tejanos. Tras la publicación de sus imágenes en la revista Life, la empresa de publicidad de Philip Morris seleccionó una de las imágenes de vaquero de McCombe para cambiar la marca del cigarrillo Marlboro y así nació el vaquero de Marlboro.

De la serie de fotos de su paso por el Río de la Plata, seleccionamos 600 que corresponden a Montevideo y algunas del interior de Uruguay. La variedad de sus fotos va desde una sesión del Palacio Legislativo a un puesto de venta de pollos en alguna ruta hacia Minas, Lavalleja.
