“ALTERNATELY HARSH AND BEATIFYING LIGHT”
LERSKI, Helmar. Mensch-mein Bruder. Dresden, 1958.
First edition, a compelling retrospective tribute published shortly after Lerski’s death, with 79 silvery photogravures by this “key influence on Germany’s Neue Sachlichkeit”-a pioneering figure whose “eerie and transfixing” Expressionist style (Roth) made him a leading Weimar cinematographer and portrait photographer. Scarce in original dust jacket. $750.
