Bela Kalman often speaks of his "third eye." For more than 55 years he has used this intuitive inner lens to see beyond the range of ordinary, everyday vision. With his tow eyes Kalman 'looks.' With his third eye he 'sees.' Van Deren Coke describes Kalman's photographs as "a meld of history, art and cultural investigations. He gets on film all kinds of subjects as he travels over the world giving us armchair tourists a sense of intimacy with places and people we may never see firsthand." The wide variety of photographs in this lavish book include "homages" to many well-known photographers, providing a form of 'history of photography' through one photographer's eye. Bela Kalman was born in Hungary in 1921, and earned a significant reputation in his field of fine photography. In October 1956 Kalman fled Hungary and settled in the United States where he worked as a professional photographer. -opisanie
