Edith - Polyfoto

Edith - London, 1935 (after Walker Evans) - click picture for a bigger view.

"Polyfoto - The Natural Photograph.
Polyfoto is the only system of photography giving natural and truly characteristic portraits, since the sitter can move and converse freely whilst the 48 photographs are being taken. 48 photographs for 2/6d"

(More to come, I hope, of Edith (and David) from St. Petersburg before the Revolution and British Spies arrested by Trotsky, to Paris, Helsingør to the Rhineland to Italy to the East African Campaign and the battle of Asmara).
