Fred Stein: Paris New York


Fred Stein: Paris New York Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fred Stein (1909-1967) was a master of street photography. As an early pioneer of the hand-held camera, he captured poignant moments in the street life of two of the world's great cities: Paris and New York, where he lived after fleeing from Nazi Germany.

This same immediacy infuses his portraits of the great personalities of the era, among them Albert Einstein, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Marc Chagall. Stein's images are a vital document of the twentieth century and an important part of photo history. He left behind an existensive oeuvre which this publication presents comprehensively for the first time.


First comprehensive publication on this virtuoso of early street photography
