Photography   •   Byron Company @ Wikipedia

Soon after entering the United States in 1888, Joseph Byron , a native of London, began to take on press photos. In 1892, he opened the New York City photo studio in Manhattan with his son Percy Claude. While Joseph Byron specialized in the scanning of theater scenes, Percy Claude established himself as a marine photographer, especially with photographs of large ocean liners and ship crews. For pictures of the maiden voyage of the passenger steamer "Normandy", 1935, he received an official order.

Both father and son convincingly documented the atmosphere of the city of New York with their photographs. As visual witnesses of the period from the turn of the century to the early 1940s, they reflected the life and culture of the metropolis in a unique way. In addition to and in their preferred themes, they are images of people of all kinds and all employment, protagonists of everyday life in its diversity, which in this photographic work join together like a mosaic. These include portraits of prominent public figures in private interiors or outside of these.

But the room itself is also an issue. It ranges from the workshop workplace to the silhouette of the New York skyline. One of these spectacular photos shows an aerial view of City Hall and the Post Office. From a distance or up close: It's the immediacy, the snapshot and the realistic scene that make up the credibility of these photos. © Meisterdrucke
