Catalog for Christer Strömholm’s exhibition at the Camera Obscura Gallery in Stockholm, 1978. Titled “Private Photos,” the exhibit was a retrospective of Strömholm’s work, from the late 1940s into the 1960s. Celebrated for his intimate street photography of urban denizens and street hustlers, this publication is particularly notably for its portraits of some of the giants of 20th century art history: Le Corbusier, Man Ray, Alberto Giacometti, Max Ernst, André Breton, Alexander Calder, Robert Rauscenberg, and Marcel Duchamp. Also of note are portraits of transgender women from the 1950s -- well before it was fashionable for street photographers to document red light districts.
