An attractive, later collection that highlights Werner Bischof’s work in the studio, produced immediately after his better known reportage of the devastation caused by WWII. Bischof was born in Switzerland. He studied photography with Hans Finsler in his native Zurich at the School for Arts and Crafts, then opened a commercial studio, where these compositions were produced. In 1942 he became a freelancer for Du magazine, which published his first major photo essays in 1943. Bischof received international recognition after the publication of his 1945 photos of the aftermath of the war.

About Near Fine; case with a bit of fraying at cloth joints; small area of abrasion at base of spine area; some prints with faint tanning, faint surface scratches and/or dimples, visible in raking light; light edge wear to most.
