CAMERA AS WEAPON: WORKER PHOTOGRAPHY BETWEEN THE WARS. Leah Ollman et al. Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, 1991. 80 pp. with 47 ills. 23 x 16 cm. In English.
Evaluating an international movement made up chiefly of amateur photographers inspired to document social and political injustice, this small but informative catalogue features five essays that explore the history of revolutionary photojournalism in Germany during the 1920s and 30s, discussing the significance of worker photography associations, the impact of the leftist journals in which the images were published (often in the form of innovative photo-essays), and the movement's ambivalent attitude toward such politically involved artists as Heartfield, Grosz and Kollwitz. Small reproductions of representative works accompany concise biographical notes for 20 German and Czech photographers.
