Photo-Eye Fritz Block. New Photography—Modern Color Slides

Photo-Eye Fritz Block. New Photography—Modern Color Slides


The rediscovery of a forgotten figure in modern photography: Beginning in 1929 the German architect Fritz Block (1889–1955) made a name for himself as a passionate photographer of New Objectivity and the New Vision. He was also known for his lively travel reportages from Paris and New York. As a Jew, Block emigrated to the US in 1938. In Los Angeles he then produced innovative color slides as media for progressive art education, particularly focusing on images of California’s modernist architecture. Spanning the eras of New Photography in Europe and color photography in America, his work is presented in this monograph for the first time.
