About This Image
Important portfolio of 27 12-1/4" x 10-1/4" gelatin silver prints, mounted, in a homemade 3-ring loose-leaf binder, within a black cloth-covered portfolio, with title actually made on photographic paper: "HOPE in the BELLEPLAIN PROJECT. Photographs by Sol Libsohn." A sheet glued to the inside of the cover is dated July 2, 1964, with note to "Margaret" from "Sol."
Libsohn died in 2001. He had been a major figure in the Photo League since the 1930s. In the period of this portfolio he was teaching at Princeton University. This portfolio deals with a project in Newark, NJ to give opportunities to out-of-work youth. The portfolio is apparently unique.
