If you're interested in learning more about the Hungarian-born Martin Munkácsi (1896–1963), there is a new book by Klaus Honnef and F. C. Gundlach that my good friend Ailsa McWhinnie, Editor-in-Chief of Black & White Photography magazine, says is "absolutely superb and well worth the investment."
The book however has different publishers and different covers depending on where you are.
In England it looks like this (above) and is published by Thames & Hudson and is available on Amazon U.K. for £29.49;
And in the U.S. it looks like this (above) and is published by Steidl, and is available on Amazon U.S. for $40.95. I haven't checked other countries or other Amazons.
According to Photographic Artists and Innovators, Munkácsi was the first to take fashion photography out of the studio. He earned about $100,000 at the peak of his fame in 1940, which was more than any photographer had ever earned up until that time. That probably accounts for his famous quote: "A picture is not worth a thousand words. It's worth a thousand bucks."
