One of the most iconic images of Dutch Photography comes from the Hungarian-born Eva Besnyö (1910 – 2003) who photographed a Romani-boy with a cello at the Lake Balaton. Adams offers a rare large-format, self-printed copy on Baryta paper from the collection of the artist’s assistant. Other highlights are Jeff Wall’s Sapling held by a post from the elusive Tate portfolio, a rare photo of Warhol with his manager Chuck Wein, ‘L’audace’, vibrant adolescents captured by Sabine Weiss, Cuban images by Raúl Corrales as well as interesting collections by Erwin Olaf and Jan Saudek.
