Fred Stein Archive Portfolio presents a collection of Stein’s touching pictures of Paris in the 1930’s, New York in the 1940’s and portraits. He’s probably most know for his Albert Einstein‘s portrait, from 1946.
Fred Stein’s photographs capture powerful images of the struggle and beauty of human life – images that transcend the cultural moment: the romance of street life in 1930’s Paris; the energy of New York during and just after World War II; and hundreds of compelling portraits of the most brilliant minds of the time. In the words of Herman Wouk: “Fred Stein has recorded the central years of our century with a flood of pictorial impressions, and a multitude of faces, famous and anonymous, which will illuminate the period forever.”
There are many beautiful pictures to explore on the site, but I would like to see them in a higher resolution. (via Larkin & Catcher’s Very Best Things)
