Aaron Siskind became a freelance photographer in 1932, the same year he joined the Photo League in New York City. In 1936, a group of photographers from the Photo League formed a production unit they called the Features Group and began a three year project documenting Harlem. In 1940, Siskind joined with Max Yavno, and writer Michael Carter, on another project in Harlem. Neither of these projects were published due to the incursion of the Second World War. This volume brings together Siskind's photographs for the first time from both projects. SIGNED by Siskind on the title page.
