In the previous post linked here, we discussed the article about Federico Patellani as it appeared in the 1998 catalog of the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie, Arles.

The English translation of the original essay in Italian and German as it appeared in the Prima rassegna della Fotografia (above) as it was published in Rencontres follows below.

img707Remember this is photo journalism before 1943, the publication date of the book, and most likely work from the late 1930’s. The images full page are reminding me of some of the best work done during that period by Dorothea Lange and other socially concerned photographers.

We covered the Fotografia book in a post last year, read the details here.
