This book introduces one of the great photographers of our century, Emil Mayer, a turn-of-the-century Viennese street photographer whose prints were largely destroyed by the Gestapo after his death. Viennese Types is Mayer's surviving masterwork, a recently discovered portfolio of original prints that is published here for the first time. It is by any measure one of the most extraordinary collections in the literature of photography, lyrical, meditative, and deeply moving.

Dr. Emil Mayer was a lawyer and photographer who was active in Vienna at the turn of the century. Long forgotten as a result of the Holocaust--most of his original prints were destroyed by the Gestapo after his death, by suicide, in 1938--one portfolio of his original prints has recently been discovered. This portfolio, a collection of street scenes of Vienna dating from 1910, reveals Mayer as one of the great street photographers of the 20th century.
