Amsterdam tijdens den hongerwinter / Amsterdam During the 'Hungerwinter'
by De Ondergedoken Camera. OORTHUYS, Cas and Emmy Andriese, among others
Amsterdam: Contact / De Bezige Bij, 1947. Uniform offsetting to the endpapers, top corners tapped, else near fine in an almost near fine jacket, a little chipped and torn at the spine ends, darkened a bit along the spine. Rare book, especially outside Amsterdam.. First Edition. Quarto. Pictures taken during the winter of 1944-1945 by leading members of the Underground Camera group, including Dutch greats Cas Oorthuys and Emmy Andriese. What emerges from this book - beyond the harrowing wartime shots of starvation and destruction - are the beginnings in photo literature of a new way of seeing the world. Forced by necessity to shoot under the most extreme conditions, the photographers are formulating a new aesthetic forged from the immediacy of circumstance. (Parr / Badger, v1, 196).
