"The more than eighty prints in this retrospective volume span a career from the 30's, when he (Max Yavno) was a young bohemian photographer in New York through his latest documentation of Los Angeles, Jerusalem, and Cairo. His graphic art has perfect visual pitch. It reflects an intimate acquaintance with the pulsation and temperature of cities, the pains and angers of the Great Depression, and an intense devotion to craft as personal salvation".
