Zoltan Kluger (born in Hungary, 1896, died in Manhattan, 1977) lived in Palestine and Israel from 1933 to 1958. During that quarter of a century, he was the chief photographer of The Orient Press Photo Company. These years yielded over 50,000 negatives documenting all aspects of life in the Jewish community of Palestine during the pre-state period and the first decade of the State of Israel. This retrospective album reproduces a sampling of his photos that testify to ?the classical period? of Zionist photography. Kluger documented Jewish efforts to establish pioneering settlements but also turned his attention to the development of urban life, manufacturing, shipping and fishing, sport and recreation, the wave of new immigrants who streamed into the new state after its establishment, and more topics. He was also a pioneer of non-military aerial photography in Palestine. Bookseller Inventory #
