Landmark Exhibition Catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now rare.

Text by Cornell Capa, Studs Terkel, and other contributors. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of the same name held at The Chicago Public Library Cultural Center in 1986. Presents "Mickey Pallas: Photographs 1945-1960". Indelible and loving street photography from an under-appreciated Master. "Your photographs are full of your strength and spirit, an amalgam of your passion for action and personal struggle" (Cornell Capa). "Ever on the go, Mickey, with the gait and build of a club fighter, was deceptively good. So good that he captured, indelibly, a piece of our history" (Studs Terkel). "Ever on the go" aptly describes the street photographer, and Mickey Pallas was the indefatigable street photographer par excellence. An absolute "must-have" title for Mickey Pallas collectors. This Exhibition Catalog is now collectible. It is neither a full-fledged book nor a monograph, but it is very beautifully produced. This is one of very few copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: ALL other copies available online have serious flaws. A rare copy thus. 32 plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. . $30.00
