Description of Fred Stein. Paris New York.
Fred Stein (1909, Dresden – 1967, New York) was a master of street photography. As a pioneer with the handheld camera, he accurately captured moments of daily life on the streets of the big city. They were created after Stein emigrated from Nazi Germany to Paris and later to New York in 1933. The same immediacy also characterizes his haunting portraits of great personalities of the time, including Albert Einstein, Georgia O'Keeffe, Marc Chagall or the double portrait of Gerda Taro and Robert Capa, rediscovered in the legendary Mexican Suitcase. Stein's photographs are an essential document of the history of the 20th century and an important part of the history of photography. Fred Stein's work is represented in numerous collections, e.g. B. in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington; International Center of Photography, New York; National Portrait Gallery, Washington; The Center for Creative Photography, Tucson; Musee Carnavalet, Paris; Jewish Museum, New York. Stein left behind a complex and extensive body of work, which is available here for the first time in a comprehensive publication.
