In addition to the street photographs for which Rudy Burckhardt is best known, these photographs, dating from 1933-1988, present portraits of strangers and friends (with and without clothes), images of Haiti, Italy and the American South, and studies of artists in the studio, including portraits of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Hans Hofmann and Larry Rivers. The irresistible interview by British poet Simon Pettet offers insights into the artist as well as his work.
