Publisher's Description

The first publication to present the work of Erich Salomon and his son Peter Hunter (Otto Salomon.)

The celebrated German press photographer Dr Erich Salomon (Berlin 1886 – Auschwitz 1944) was forced by the rise of National Socialism to settle in The Netherlands at the beginning of 1933. He captured like no other the political and cultural protagonists of the Depression years. His son Otto Salomon (Berlin 1913) emigrated to London in 1935 where he too became a press photographer. For security reasons, while serving in the British army, he assumed the name Peter Hunter. The only surviving member of the family, after the liberation he took it upon himself to keep the memory of his father's work alive. As a result his own photography fell unjustly into oblivion. This book brings together for the first time unpublished and forgotten images by father and son from their years of exile in The Hague and London.
