FRED STEIN: PARIS NEW YORK. Ed. by Dawn Freer. Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg, 2013. Published in association with Judisches Museum, Berlin. 200 pp. with 125 ills. 32 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783868284294 Bilingual in English and German.
Although published on the occasion of a related exhibition that opened at the Judisches Museum, Berlin, in late 2013, and imprinted with the museum's name and logo on the colophon page, this book does not specifically document the show. Publisher's description: 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.
