Nostalgias of Malta: Images by Geo Fürst from the 1930s

Front Cover
Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti, 2006 - Malta - 212 pages
Malta has all but forgotten Geo Fuerst, the great photographer of the 1930s; his name and his work remain familiar only to keen antique postcard collectors, and to those Melitensia lovers who treasure his three pre-war books, all quite difficult to come by and one exceedingly scarce. In 2002, the London-based Malta Study Circle printed a catalogue of Fuerst's Maltese postcards; concurrently, the author published a brief biography. The intention of this publication is to present a historical register of a fast-disappearing Malta, as frozen on film by a sensitive psychoanalyst of the national spirit during the inter-war years. It contains over 200 photos of 1930s, Malta many of which are published here for the first time.
