Text: English, French (translation)From Library Journal:
Freund is well known as a photohistorian and sociologist ( Photography and Society, LJ 8/80) and as a photojournalist. She photographed only the writers, artists, and philosophers whom she liked, and her selection brings together on these pages most of the important figures of the last half-century: Walter Benjamin, Max Ernst, Valery, Colette, Duras, Joyce, Shaw, Malraux, Huxley, Forster, Auden, Eliot, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Virginia Woolf. She includes her recollections of these people. We also see some of her reportage work in Hitler's Germany (1932-33) and in the distressed areas of England (1936). The reproductions are excellent, and testify to the longevity of the color films she used. Recommended. Kathleen Collins, Library of Congress
