The Missing Faces From “Tiborc”

Szemtöl szemben. / Szemtől szemben. [Face to Face.]

(Budapest): Kelet Népe (Pápai Ernő; id. Weinwurm Antal), (1939). First edition. In original hard paper. With photographically illustrated dust cover. (2), 32, (4) p. In fine condition.

32 photos by Kata Kálmán. This work is the continuation of "Tiborc" (Parr & Badger, 140), contains portraits of peasants and workers which were not included into her formerly published book. "In general Kálmán's photographs, tightly cropped head-and-shoulder shots, demonstrate the same serene disinterest shown by Evans, with perhaps a hint of Helmar Lerski's Expressionism". (Parr-Badger: The Photobook. Phaidon, 2004.) This compilation of documentary photographs mostly differs from "Tiborc" in the lack of text. The book starts with a four line quotation from Endre Ady the progressive Hungarian poet of the early 20th century which gives the tone for the following photos.
