Athol Shmith - Photographer

Author(s): Isobel Crombie


"No discussion of the photographic history of Australia can proceed very far before the name Athol Shmith comes to fore. His career as a studio photographer spanned several decades from the nineteen-thirties when his first softly focused portraits were taken in the family sitting room in St Kilda, Melbourne, through a meteoric rise to popularity as a fashion and celebrity photographer, to the influential positon of Head of Photography in the Prahram College of Advanced Education throughout the seventies."--BOOK JACKET.

1989. First edition. A near fine copy only marked by very light tanning to the page edges. The d/w is unclipped and very good with some shelf scuffing.
