Text by Val Williams.
Virago Press, London, English, 1989. In Great Britain. 159 pp., numerous halftone illustrations,, 8¼x11".

Ida Kar came to London in 1945 and relentlessly photographed the writers and artists involved in the new bohemia she found there. Her pictures include photographs of Bridget Riley, Eugene Ionesco, Doris Lessing and T.S. Eliot. Kar's documentary studies of London street life, of Castro's revolutionary Cuba, and her explorations of her homeland Armenia, exploded on the British cultural scene at a time when photography was excluded from the realms of high art. Val Williams is the author of Women Photographers: The Other Observers 1900 to the Present.
