Let Truth be the Prejudice: W. Eugene Smith: His Life and Photographsby W. Eugene Smith
Let Truth Be The Prejudice. W Eugene Smith: His Life and Photographs. Worldfamous biography by Ben Maddow; Afterword by John G. Morris. Here is the definitive book on Smith's life and work, containing his major photoessays, the portrait work, and spanning his brilliant career from his days aboard an aircraft carrier, through the breadth of Pittsburgh, to the human suffering explicit in his last great essay in Minanata. 250 duotone photographs, 10 X 13, 240 pages.
This reprinting of Ben Maddow's clssic 1985 'illustrated biography' of this century's most richly problematic photojournalist a book full of ideas, insights, information, and fine reproductions now joins Jim Hughes's subsequent critical biography, Shadow and Substance, Gilles Mora and John T. Hill's just published W. Eugene Smith: Photographs 1934-1975, unfortunately out of print Master of the Photographic Essay, to constitute a substantial critical literature in book form on this germinal figure."
