Ruth Orkin is a legend of street photography - her atmospheric pictures taken in cities such as Florence, New York and London still shape the image of these metropolises today. But Orkin's specialty not only encompassed the urban but also the personal. This is evident in her unique eye that enabled her street scenes to consistently offer penetrating insights into the time and personality of her subjects. And it likewise shows in her fantastic portraits of celebrities such as Albert Einstein, Woody Allen, and Lauren Bacall. These inimitable images seemingly combine snapshot and pose to present the star in his or her role and at the same time as an autonomous individual. Published on the occasion of the photographer's 100th birthday, this illustrated book celebrates Orkin's life and work with an equally extensive and fascinating overview of this exceptional artist's oeuvre.
