UNSEEN: LONDON, PARIS, NEW YORK: PHOTOGRAPHS BY WOLFGANG SUSCHITZKY, DOROTHY BOHM AND NEIL LIBBERT 1930S-1960S. Katy Barron. Ben Uri Gallery, London Jewish Museum of Art, London, 2016.

Publisher's description: The first publication to bring together three major twentieth-century photographers - Wolfgang Suschitzky, Dorothy Bohm and Neil Libbert - presenting their artistic responses to three great world cities across three crucial decades. Today, London, Paris, and New York are so familiar that it is hard for a modern viewer to imagine them afresh without the visual expectations fostered by art, film and advertising in the digital age. Yet when each of these photographers arrived at their respective destinations, they found cities that were strange and new to them and responded by photographing them without prejudice or expectation. The photographs reveal that all three cities were not only places of social division and political tension, but also of beauty and magic. The publication and exhibition includes many works never previously exhibited in the UK, and each series presents an opportunity to view an aspect of the work of a renowned photographer in real depth.
