The photographer to Dr. Erhard Frommhold, Verlag der Kunst, Dresden
Acquired by the present owners from the above, 2006
The Egyptian studies presented here were all published in Strand's cultural study of mid-20th-century Egypt, Living Egypt, with accompanying text by James Aldridge. Taken in Egypt in 1959, Strand's photographs depict an ancient society in contest with industrialization, and comprised the fourth of Strand's series of five volumes of foreign lands and peoples. The book was first published in 1969, in Dresden by Verlag der Kunst and in London by MacGibbon and Kee.
As the photographs offered here come originally from the collection of Dr. Erich Frommhold of Verlag der Kunst; it is possible that these are the very prints reproduced in the publication.
