W Eugene Smith

                                                    W Eugene Smith
From the bookshelf  ||
W Eugene Smith, one of photography´s legendary figures, published a series of memorable newspaper articles/photo-essays and books in his lifetime. The images from Nurse Midwife, Country Doctor, Albert Schweitzer - A Man of Mercy, Spanish Village and Minamata are of course unforgettable. Smith´s almost fanatically dedication to his mission as a photographer is remarkable... his obsession with the Pittsburgh project that turned a three week assignment into a never ending drama .. or his jazz loft project at 821 Sixth Avenue - posthumously immortalized in the books "Dream Street - W Eugene Smith´s Pittsburgh Project" [Sam Stephenson, 2001] and "The Jazz Loft Project" [Sam Stephenson, 2009] ....
