In a relentless succession of images and words, this book traces the incredible life of Tomas D.W. Friedmann (1925-2012), one of the most important traveling photographers of the last century.
Born in pre-Nazi Germany to a family of Jewish origin (the mother photographs, his father, a renowned modernist architect), emigrated and raised since 1933 in British Palestine, after the war and many vicissitudes Friedmann moved to New York, where he founded the PIP PHOTOS INC agency and obtained US citizenship. His social photographs, naturalistic and anthropological, taken during a sort of continuous journey across the five continents, from the 1950s to the 1980s, they appeared in hundreds of books and newspapers and on the covers of some of the most prestigious magazines of the time. Creative and adventurous entrepreneur, its network of collaborators extends to almost all countries of the world and finds in paparazzi of sweet life Roman accomplices of epochal worldly scoops. His reports on black Africa stand out as icons in international newspapers: from Nobel Peace Prize missions to wildlife hunters, from tribal healers to the contradictions of apartheid. His autobiography Globetrotter in the Sixties (published posthumously, an excerpt of which is reported in this book) it is a concentrate of adventures and reflections from the individual micro-cosmos to the universal macro-cosmos.
