The work of photographer Clemens Kalischer was familiar only to insiders for many years. Born in Germany in 1921, he fled with his family to France in 1933 and later emigrated to the U.S. In America, photography became both his vocation and his personal means of expression. His clients included such prominent magazines as Time, Life, and Fortune, and he worked on assignment for the New York Times for 35 years. In 1955, Clemens Kalischer took part in Edward Steichen's legendary exhibition The Family of Man at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. People have been the focus of his interest for more than 50 years. One of his first series was the cycle entitled Displaced Persons. In these quiet images, Clemens Kalischer chronicles the arrival of Holocaust refugees in the U.S. during the forties. Later works include photographs of everyday scenes in New York and impressions from his travels in Europe. His images of people and the circumstances in which they live are characterized by a striking sensitivity and formal command. This volume of photographs presenting some 120 reproductions in duplex quality provides revealing insights into the extensive oeuvre of Clemens Kalischer, who is still an active photographer today.
