Publisher's Description

This book presents little-known photos by the legendary Swedish photographer Christer Strömholm (1918–2002) selected by Gunnar Smoliansky. In the late 1980s, gallerist Kim Klein proposed a small exhibition of Strömholm’s pictures at the Lido Gallery in Stockholm. Strömholm agreed and entrusted Smoliansky with making a selection from his early 6x6 Rolleiflex negatives. Smoliansky was delighted to do so?the planned 10 to 12 photos soon ballooned to 70?and he printed two sets, one for Strömholm and one for himself. The photos date from the late 1940s and early ’50s, and show Strömholm’s formative years in Paris, the south of France, Morocco and other destinations. Most of these pictures had never before been printed, let alone publicized, until their exhibition in 1990.
