Fred Stein. Paris New York

Exhibition Catalog

Fred Stein (1909, Dresden – 1967, New York) was a master of street photography. As a pioneer of the hand camera, he accurately recorded moments of daily life in the streets of the big city. His photos emerged after Stein emigrated away from Nazi-Germany to Paris in 1933 and later to New York. Stein's photographs are an essential documentation of 20th century history and an important component of the history of photography. 128 of his pictures are assembled in this catalog.
