Fred Stein's photographs capture powerful images of the struggle and beauty of human life - images that transcend the cultural moment: the romance of street life in 1930's Paris; the energy of New York during and just after World War II; and hundreds of compelling portraits of the most brilliant minds of the time. In the words of Herman Wouk: "Fred Stein has recorded the central years of our century with a flood of pictorial impressions, and a multitude of faces, famous and anonymous, which will illuminate the period forever."
