Thanks for the heads up on this photographer, Mike. I tried to order the book (great price!) for delivery to Australia but unfortunately they only ship to US Zip Codes.

I knew of his work only from stories about the Photo League, and an occasional mention (and a portrait) in one of David Vestal's books. Thanks for bringing him to our attention- and I must say your description of his work is right on. Well done Mike!

I'm sorry, Mike, but I'll have to buy it outside TOP's link.

Addendum: The link to Helen Gee's "Limelight" book leads to very expensive out-of-print printed books. Please note that "Limelight" is also available in a Kindle edition for about $11!
