        The poet John Betjeman - Eccentric Genius - photographed in London, 1977.

      Extra Large Original Photograph on archival paper. Image: 37 cm x 48 cm / Framed: 60 cm x 72 cm. From the private library and archive of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed by John Minihan below the image. Beautifully framed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995) Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996) and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986 the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        The Road to Serfdom [Abridged Edition].

      London: George Routledge & Sons Ltd., 1946 - Octavo. Original white paper wrappers lettered in blue. Rear wrapper a little chipped at foot, spine very lightly rubbed. Light spotting and paper a little browned; a very good copy. Repricing sticker (3' 6 net rather than 2/6 net) to front wrapper. First abridged edition of Hayek's Road to Serfdom, originally published in 1944. "To this Preface of the original editon, published in March 1944, only a few words need be added in explanation of the present ABRIDGED EDITION. Although a cheap edition of the complete book has already been issued . many friends have urged on me the desirability of a shorter and still cheaper edition for those who can spare neither the time nor the money for the longer book. In addition, war-time restrictions still make it impossible fully to meet the demand for the complete version and by cutting the length of the book by about one-half, twice the number of copies can be produced from a given stock of paper. When, finally, a friend even offered to prepare for me the abridgement. I accepted . I hope that by the process of condensation the book has also become easier to read, though the problems with which it deals are inevitably difficult and for their adequate treatment the original book would have to be made much longer rather than shorter" (p. 8). See Cody & Ostrem B-6. Copac locates only 3 copies, at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and at the National Library of Wales. [Attributes: First Edition]

Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Beckett's winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995) Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996) and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers (1996). He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986 the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        Mini Archive Comprising Two Photograph Albums with Excellent Views of Northern India, Two War Campaign Medals, and Ephemeral Documents.

      1943-1946, India - Mini Archive comprising: two photographs albums of northern Indian, two war campaign and ephemeral documents including an army pass, of an English officer Stanley E. Dean of Warminster, Wiltshire, who was a surgeon with the British Army Royal Corps of Signals, No 122 Telegraph Operating Section based in Kirkburton, Yorkshire, and serving in India during the Second World War. The albums together contain 321 gelatin silver print photographs, mostly snapshot views, with detailed manuscript captions, mounted onto cardstock leaves separated with tissue guards. An additional 7 photographs are loosely placed within. Two oblong 8vo. string-tied albums measuring approximately 26 x 19 cm, cloth boards, one brown, the other taupe. Front pastedown to second album is annotated and dated in manuscript. Fourteen (14) newspaper clippings are placed within the volumes alongside related photographs. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 5,5 x 5,5 cm, the largest 10 x 12 cm, and 2 panoramic views measuring 15,5 x 6 cm. Two campaign medals and one accompanying ribbon bar were awarded to the officer for his service in India, here contained in the original O.H.M.S. box of issue with the entitlement notice leaf, in excellent condition as issued and never worn. Slight wear to album boards and medals box, otherwise the lot in Very Good Condition. Nostalgic and striking views of Kashmir and Jammu, the Himalayan foothill regions, high altitude hill station towns, and New Delhi, are abundant in the two albums of photographs compiled surgeon Stanley Dean of the Royal Corps of Signals Telegraph Operating Section. Dean departed for India from Liverpool on 14 August 1943 with the British Army Royal Corps of Signals, No 122 Telegraph Operating Section. During the Second World War, the Supplementary Air Formation Signals were augmented to at least nineteen units. Several were formed in Kirkburton in Yorkshire in 1943, some of which were for service India, their main purpose being to supply signal personnel for advanced air fields. The 19th regiment, for example, supported Gemeral Slim's 14th Army as it liberated Burma from the Japanese. On a grander scale, the Signals Units were tasked with improving signals, communications, and radar, which also involved improving the Indian Army post and telegraph departments, and constructing long-distance overhead carrier systems. Travelling and mountain trekking extensively throughout northern India, photographs capture the vastness of the mountainous region of Kashmir. Highlights include panoramic views of Nainital and of the Himalayan Range with the Nada Devi summit at its center, multiple views of Dal Lake near Srinagar some of which show the long houseboats for which it is famed, rare photographs of the Northwest Frontier customs post at Domel, nostalgic photographs of Shimla and Srinagar, and ancient ruins such as the Kashmiri Pandit Martand Sun Temple. His voyage home, departing from Bombay on 14 August 1946 precisely three years to the day after his departure from England, is captured in 20 photographs. The passage took him to Aden and through the Suez Canal, with a stop at Port Said. The first album begins in what is now Pakistan, with the scenes at the remote town of Jhika Gali and the Topa Hills. Superb professional photographs capture life in the historic town of Murree which was founded in 1851 as a sanatorium for British troops. At least one photograph shows the officer at Islamabad, now the capital city of Pakistan, with rickshaws behind him. Twelve images show army camp life on Kuldana Mountain, Murree, Pakistan. A cantonment named "Kuldana" was established in the 1860s by the British Army, in the verdant hills of Murree. [Several renowned British regiments have camped at Kuldana, some of which include the Northumberland Fusiliers, Devonshires, Duke of Wellington's, Leicestershires, Bedfordshires Regiment, 3rd Battalion The Rifle Brigade, 1st Battalion Gordon's Highlanders, West Yor

        Two Photographs Albums from Iraq and Egypt, with Rare Post-war Snapshots.

      Iraq and Egypt, 1946-1948 A pair of photograph albums spanning two years of duty in Iraq, with tours to Egypt and the Suez Canal Zone, of Royal Air Force officer W. Derek Wilson who served with the AHQ Iraq Command, Pay and Equipment Accounts Division. Together, the albums contain some 240 photographs pertaining to Wilson's post abroad, each with a detailed manuscript caption. Additionally, some 20 photographs illustrate the return passage via Malta, and 40 photographs show his wedding and home life upon returning to England. Oblong 8vo. string-tied albums measuring approximately 18,5 x 22 cm, brown cloth over brown patterned boards, with the officer's inscription to front pastedown. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 4,5 x 6 cm, and the largest 21 x 14 cm, the majority measuring approximately 8,5 x 6 cm. Some wear to boards, particularly at extremities, otherwise in Very Good Condition, crisp and uncommon snapshot views. With glimpses of indigenous life in Habbaniya, Mosul, and Baghdad, a desirable tour of the Egyptian pyramids, memorable scenes of remote military camps, colleagues and aircraft, this uncommon visual chronicle effectively illustrates the post world war years and final stages of British occupation in Iraq and the Suez Canal Zone. Wilson inscribes his first album, indicating that his departure from England had been in June 1946. Almaza, near Cairo was his first post, the Air Force Base and military camp seemingly one in the same at the time. A series of aircrafts are photographed as they arrived for service. Close proximity and regular flight service from an Anglo-Egyptian company, granted him the opportunity to visit Giza. The album includes snapshot photographs of the sphinx and pyramids, as well as views from Cairo and Heliopolis. At Habbaniya, a rare photograph captures four Sheiks in traditional dress mounting their horses for a customary race, the under-secretary of the State of Aïr being present for the event and seen in the foreground. To remember this post by, he further photographs his billet accommodations, fellow RAF officers, a flying boat aircraft having landed on the lake, and some city scenes. Lake Habbaniyah created a retreat-like reprieve from military duty with its pristine beaches. Christmas 1947 was spent at Habbaniya. Indigenous life in Iraq is best captured in photographs taken at a village called Abu Flais, situated near Baghdad. In the capital city he takes notice of the exquisite architectural ornamentation of the Al-Haydar Khana mosque and its minarets, as well as the ancient Assyrian Gate, and the statue of King Faisal I whose reign ended at the time of his death in 1933. Also at Baghdad, he embarks a small canopied row boat to cross the Tigris. Wilson and company make a journey though rugged mountainous terrain into northern Iraq, from Baghdad to Mosul, travelling through mountain passes between some camps on horseback. Describing the single winding road to Ser Amadia which pierces an endless vista of desolate hills, the officer counts 61 hairpin corners, the camp situated at an altitude of 6,000 feet. In the distance the indigenous village of Amadia is seen perched upon a rocky plateau. Views to illustrate his time of service in the Suez Canal Zone include rare camp scenes from RAF El Harma and RAF Kasfareet, the latter of which was the largest RAF unit in the area. Also uncommon are the photographs of the officer's club called Malcolm Club, situated on Egypt's Great Bitter Lake. A scant few photographs are taken at Port Said. [Despite the appearance of peace and harmony in these photographs, there was much unrest in the region at this time, which would only increase. The outbreak of the Second World War had stimulated the Iraqi economy, in particular domestic industrial production, by cutting off the ready supply of foreign goods. The influx of British troops provided an important market for local products, and the army directly employed a large number of Iraqis. British military occupation of Iraq continued until late 1947. However, the years following the Second World War were marked by instability and turmoil across the Middle East. Colonial powers retreated and social order gradually deteriorated, militant trade union movement began to challenge capitalism, nationalists and industrialists were at great odds, a resulting in a waves of strikes and a period of deep revolutionary crisis in the 1950s.] Royal Air Force Station Habbaniya, more commonly known as RAF Habbaniya, (originally RAF Dhibban) was a Royal Air Force station at Habbaniyah, about 55 miles (89 km) west of Baghdad in modern day Iraq, on the banks of the Euphrates near Lake Habbaniyah. It was operational from October 1936 until the 31 May 1959 when the British were finally withdrawn following the July 1958 Revolution. The base was extensive and included the Air Headquarters of RAF Iraq Command, maintenance units, an aircraft depot, an RAF hospital, RAF Iraq Levies barracks, the RAF Armoured Car Company depot as well as fuel and bomb stores. There were numerous billets, messes and a wide range of leisure facilities including swimming pools, cinemas and theatres, sports pitches, tennis courts and riding stables. It was self-contained with its own power station, water purification plant and sewage farm. Within the base was the Civil Cantonment for the civilian workers and their families and the families of the RAF Iraq Levies. Water taken from the Euphrates for the irrigation systems enabled green lawns, flower beds and even ornamental Botanical Gardens. After World War II the families of British personnel started living at Habbaniya and a school was started..

        Auto-Da-Fe.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1946. First edition in English of the Nobel Prize-winning author's most well-known work. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by Elias Canetti on the front free endpaper. Near fine in a very good dust jacket that shows some light toning to the spine. Translated by from the German by C. V. Wedgwood. Rare and desirable signed. Originally published in German as "Die Blendung" in 1935 and later banned in Nazi Germany, Auto-Da-Fe did not become widely known until the publication of Canetti's "Crowds and Power" in 1960. "In Auto-da-Fé no one is spared. Professor and furniture salesman, doctor, housekeeper, and thief all get it in the neck. The remoreseless quality of the comedy builds one of the most terrifying literary worlds of the century" (Salman Rushdie). "Savage, subtle, beautifully mysterious--one of the few great novels of the century" (Iris Murdoch). "A strange, eloquent and terrifying book" (Philip Toynbee). Auto da Fé is the story of Peter Kien, a distinguished, reclusive Sinologist living in Germany between the wars. With masterly precision, Canetti builds up the elements in Kien himself, and his personal relationships, which will lead to his destruction.

She is also Queen of 12 countries that have become independent since her accession: Jamaica, Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Kitts and Nevis.[b] Elizabeth was born in London to the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and was the elder of their two daughters. She was educated privately at home. Her father acceded to the throne on the abdication of his brother Edward VIII in 1936, from which time she was the heir presumptive. She began to undertake public duties during World War II, serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service. In 1947, she married Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, with whom she has four children: Charles, Anne, Andrew, and Edward. Edgar Algernon Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 1st Viscount Cecil of Chelwood CH PC QC (14 September 1864 - 24 November 1958), known as Lord Robert Cecil from 1868 to 1923,[1] was a lawyer, politician and diplomat in the United Kingdom. He was one of the architects of the League of Nations and a defender of it, whose service to the organisation saw him awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1937. Edric Cundell (Composer, Arranger) Born: January 29, 1893 - London, England Died: March 19, 1961 - Ashwell, Hertfordshire, England Life The English composer and conductor, Edric Cundell, studied the French horn at Trinity College London and joined its teaching staff in 1914. Edric Cundell was active as a horn player and pianist, and also conducted amateur groups. In 1935 he founded the Edric Cundell Chamber Orchestra. In 1938, after a good deal of conducting experience, notably at Glyndebourne, he became Principal of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in succession to the deceased Landon Ronald and conducted many student opera performances. He retired in 1958. In 1949 he was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Works Edric Cundell's compositions included: a Symphony in C minor, Op. 24, a Piano Concerto, a Serenade for strings in D major, the symphonic poems The Tragedy of Deirdre and Serbia (the latter scored in the front line while Cundell was serving in the Balkans during the Great War), and three suites, all for orchestra; the Hymn to Providence, for mixed chorus and orchestra and shorter choral pieces; the sonnet for tenor and orchestra Our Dead; an unaccompanied Mass; a Sextet for soprano, tenor, bass, violin, viola and cello; a Piano Quartet and three string quartets, of which the second, in C major, published as Op. 27, won a Daily Telegraph competition in 1933 and the first, in G minor, Op. 18, was praised by Cobbett; a Rhapsody for viola (or cello) and piano, Two Pieces for brass quartet published in 1957; the piano solos April Song and, for young performers, The Water Babies; and songs like Boy Johnny, Vagabond's Song and I Will Make You Brooches. Cundell even figured in the brass band world, as his Blackfriars was the test piece for the 1957 National Championships, although this was admittedly an arrangement by Frank Wright, from, presumably, an orchestral original. The Guildhall School of Music and Drama is an independent music and dramatic arts school which was founded in 1880 in London, England. Students can pursue courses in Music, Opera, Drama and Technical Theatre Arts. The modern Guildhall School is the only major European conservatoire which is both a music school and a drama school, and one which is involved in technical theatre, professional development and music therapy.[3] The School currently numbers almost 900 students, approximately 700 of whom are undergraduate and postgraduate music students and 175 on the Acting and Technical Theatre programmes. In any given year, about 40% of the students are from outside the UK, typically representing over 50 nationalities.[3] The current chairman of Guildhall is David Andrew Graves (Alderman), elected a governor in 2009 he quickly excelled to deputy of the board to chairman by 2012. Guildhall's principal is Professor Barry Ife. He has made the Guildhall School the UK's single largest provider of music education to under 18s by incorporating the Centre for Young Musicians (CYM) and creating new music 'hubs' in Norfolk and Somerset; he has achieved recognition for Guildhall's music outreach and opera programmes through two Queen's Anniversary Prizes (2005 and 2007); and he has realised the School's long-held ambition to build additional facilities at Milton Court (opened September 2013), including performance venues, rehearsal and teaching spaces.[4] Most recently, Professor Ife led the Guildhall School's application for Taught Degree-Awarding Powers, which were granted by the Privy Council in April 2014.[4] The Guildhall School is the lead institution for the Innovative Conservatoire project.

        FRAGMENTEN UIT HET DAGBOEK VAN ANNE FRANK [Het Achterhuis; The Secret Annex; Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl]

      Amsterdam: Van Loghum Slaterus, 1946. First Edition. Original wrappers. Very Good. THE EXCEEDINGLY RARE FIRST APPEARANCE OF ANY PART OF THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK; PRECEDING THE BOOK EDITION. A BEAUTIFUL COPY IN SCARCE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS. "The diary written by Anne Frank is probably the single most widely read book to come out of the Holocaust... Millions of readers have read the story of the teenage girl's two years in hiding. It has been translated into more than thirty-five languages and published in as many countries. Her diary was also the foundation for a successful drama performed worldwide (The Diary of Anne Frank, 1956) and a film of the same title (1959). Especially in the last twenty years, many schoolchildren and adults alike have had their first exposure to the effects of Adolf Hitler's war through Anne's writing. Anne's diary so captured the attention of the world that her name has become symbolic of the six million Jewish victims of the Shoah…
 "To many, Anne Frank has become a symbol of the strength and optimism of the human spirit in the midst of tragedy. In July 1944 Anne wrote what was to become the most famous line of her diary and the one most often used to symbolize her spirit. 'In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart'… Anne's writing put a human face to the unfathomable statistics of the millions of individuals who suffered and died" (Sarita Cargas, Encyclopedia of Holocaust Literature). On the publication in De Nieuwe Stem: The Diary, although now recognized as such an important historical document, almost never found its way into print. Anne's father, Otto Frank, gained possession of the manuscript after the war. By April 1946, the diary already had been rejected by several publishers and Otto Frank was having doubts about continuing to pursue publication. It was at this time that "he gave one typed copy to a friend, who lent it to Jan Romein, a professor of modern history. Much to Otto Frank's surprise the professor devoted an article to it in a Dutch newspaper, Het Parool... Romein's article appeared on April 3, 1946, hailing the diary as an outstanding example of wartime documentation by a remarkably talented Jewish girl (whose name was not disclosed)... His friends now urged Otto Frank to have Anne's diary published as she herself had wished" (quoted in Jeffrey Shandler, From Diary to Book). Jan Romein was so impressed by the diary that, as one of the editors of the new left-leaning journal De Nieuwe Stem, he was able to arrange for the publication of excerpts from the diary in the journal's sixth issue, appearing in June 1946. These five excerpts (to "Kitty") begin on July 11, 1942, and conclude on April 11, 1944 and "mark the first publication of Anne's writing" (ibid), preceding the book edition, ultimately published in 1947 with a preface by Jan Romein's wife, Anne Romein-Verschoor. In "De Nieuwe Stem," Vol I, Nr. 6 (June, 1946), pp. 431-442. Amsterdam: Van Loghum Slaterus, June 1946. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. Text in Dutch. Light chipping to wrapper edges; overall a remarkably well-preserved copy.

      JUDAICA MOSHE VOROBEICHIK RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE PHOTO ALBUM "POLIN" POLAND 1946 Poland, by Moshe Vorobeichic-Raviv [Photographer]. Tel-Aviv, [1946]., [3] leaves + 9 plates. 27 x 20 cm. Folder containing 10 photo-prints (HERE 9 PHOTO PRINTS, PHOTO "JEWISH WOMAN" "ISHA IVRIYA" IS MISSING) of Jewish figures in Poland."Photos in this folder were taken during travels around Poland prior to the war. I only intended to 'catch' here and there the interesting and characteristic from a photographic point of view only, hence these photos are not meant to portray all aspects of Polish Jewry". Originally Vorobeichik planned to publish an additional series of photos but the project was not feasible since "there was a shortage of paper and bad printing conditions". The portfolio includes the original cover leaf (the title "Poland" printed in red, on the background of a "Yizkor" prayer commemorating the Namyriv 1648 victims) and a leaf with a poem by Avraham Broides. FOLDER WORN, BROWNED. DAMPED, STAINED. 3 LEAVES BROWND PLATES YELLOW-BROWNED TO MOST OF PLATES DAMPING OR BROWN STAINS TO EDGES NOT AFFECTING PICTURES  Moshé Raviv-Vorobeichic (Vorobeichik) (born Moi Ver; 1904-1995) was a photographer and painter Moi Ver (Moshe Raviv) was born in 1904 in Vilnius, Lithuania as Moses Vorobeichic. He initially studied painting. In his early 20s he matriculated at the Bauhaus, taking courses with Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, and Josef Albers, and left from there to attend the Ecole Photo One in Paris. In his book Moi Ver: Paris, he produced avant-garde photomontages. Originally published in 1931 by Editions Jeanne Walter with an introduction by Futurist Fernand Léger. In 1932 Raviv was sent by the weekly Vie to Palestine as photo-reporter. Raviv illustrated many books. Raviv was a founder of the Artists' Colony in Safed. He adopted Zionism in 1934 and immigrated to what was then known as Palestine. Moshe Raviv-Vorobeichic (as he called himself in Israel) focus more on painting than photography and lived in Safed until his death in 1995.
