idely acclaimed as one of the best art/photography books of the year, this book introduces one of photography’s unknown masterworks: Viennese Types by Emil Mayer. Long forgotten as a result of the Holocaust, Emil Mayer was a Jewish photographer from turn-of-the-century Vienna whose prints were largely destroyed by the Gestapo after his death. This extraordinary collection establishes Mayer as a master of photography, whose art offers us a vision of a bygone age, in a book that is lyrical, moving, and exquisitely beautiful.
