And if you would like to own some prints of Martin Munkácsi's work:


I got their print of "Jungen am Ufer des Tanganyika Sees" and it's very good. Go for the framed version, the Halbe frames they use are very nice indeed.

Readers interested in Munkacsi may also like to search out the source from which I first encountered his wonderful work, back in the 1970s. The Creative Camera International Year Book 1977 carries an impressive portfolio, together with a biographical article and comment by Colin Osman.

As a bonus, the book also features extensive portfolios by Harry Callahan and Raymond Moore - all in all a fantastic selection of pictures. The book was published by Coo Press and copies may still be found from the usual secondhand book sources.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art currently has a major exhibition of Martin Munkacsi's photographs

The photo that is on the cover of the UK edition is currently on display at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, as part of their Munkácsi exhibition. But it is hung there at right angles to the way it's displayed on the book cover (woman's head is at top right). I think it's a more powerful composition the way it appears on the book cover. I wonder which way Munkácsi intended.
