Fasanelli; Portraits; Extended Portraits: Albert Einstein, Thomas Mann, Alfred Stieglitz, Marc Chagall, Robert Frost; Cities; Theatre and Dance; Photogenics with b&w photographs. First Edition, 1978. "Johanna Alexandra 'Lotte' Jacobi (1896-1990) comes from a long line of German photographers. Her portraits have a uniquely cordial and intimate mood, as if the people were familiar to us long before their prestigious reputations. Among her subjects that appear in this book are Thomas Mann, Max Planck, Konstantin Stanislawski, Pablo Casals, Martin Buber, Lotte Lenya, Edward Steichen, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy to name a few. Also included are alluring examples of her theatre and danse photography, cityscapers of Hamburg and Berlin, and her abstract 'photogenics', and an essay by art historian James Fasanelli tracing the cultural heritage and fascinating development of this independent artist. Of special intrest are the 'photogenics', created by Jacobi in the 1950s. These are non-camera pictures that utilize candles, flashlights, glass, cellphane, and paper cut in odd shapes." from the jacket flap. Not Price Clipped. Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Off-white cloth with brown lettering to front board and spine. Size: 4to. Bookseller Inventory # 002544
