(1910-2009) Born in Prague, he escaped from Czechoslovakia in 1939 with his wife. He settled first in New York City where he worked at the Czechoslovakian Pavilion of the 1939 World’s Fair and later, after World War II, at the United Nations – in each case working with documentary filmmakers in the public information department. From the 1940’s he photographed life in New York City, and his work has been widely exhibited. Two of his best-known images are “Brooklyn Bridge” and “Between Heaven and Earth,” which won the U. S. Camera’s first prize in 1951.
