Judy Polumbaum, Juxtapositions

Editor Judy Polumbaum presents a collection of her father's iconic photographs.

Using the motif of paired pictures, this volume of selections from the vast Ted Polumbaum collection in the Newseum in Washington, D.C. draws attention to human connections across time, culture, and geography that all generations can appreciate. As a photojournalist, Ted Polumbaum documented some of the most important news events and social movements of the second half of the twentieth century. On assignment for the era's great picture magazines as well as through independent projects, he photographed athletes, artists, parades, protests, and more. Above all, traveling throughout the Americas and around the world, he chronicled the lives and aspirations of ordinary people. Along with cameos of political and cultural icons, the book offers a clear and generous vision of the human condition in all its commonality and variety.
