in his younger days my dad worked as a photographer, first for the air force and later for a hospital. while there is some grizzly evidence of the latter role, today i'm sharing with you some photos not taken by him, but from a book he owned - 'foto reporter sehen die welt.'
i don't know where this book came from: i'm guessing it was probably a gift from my mother, seeing as she was always a good gifter, and she seemed to be the one who came by all the great old art books i now own. the images are all from around 1968 and earlier.
the photos are captioned with translations from the book but i couldn't find any mention of who took the photos. i ssearched, but mein deutsch ist nicht so gut.
