Summary:
In a photographic biography, the balance between text and illustrations must always represent an uneasy compromise. In this study the aim has been to cut the text to a minimum, and to allow the photographs to create their own impression. The text aims to introduce a particular group of photographs, rather than provide a continuous narrative accompaniment. - Editor's note.
