About This Image
Photographer's stamp on verso.
These four images capture cock fights in various stages of progression, including one shot of the all-male audience, and three dramatic, mid-fight close-ups between two fighting birds. One image in poor condition, with one large diagonal fold and one small tear. The photographer's old photo agency label appears on the verso of each print.
Grunzweig was born in Prague and escaped to the US from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia in 1939, settling in New York City. He is particularly known for his documentary photographs of NYC, but he also traveled extensively around the United States and throughout the world. Grunzweig died in 2009, just short of his 99th birthday.
Grunzweig's work has been widely exhibited and can be found in many important collections including the Museum of Modern Art (NY), the International Center of Photography, the Jewish Museum (NY), the Israel Museum (Jerusalem), the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Seagram's Photo Collection.
