Eva Besnyö: Budapest - Berlin - Amsterdam Reviews
I'd never heard of Eva Besnyo until coming across this book, but I'm really glad I did; the photos are terrific, and they're wide-ranging in terms of the subject matter. Also; I recommend reading up on Ms. Besnyo's life, as apparently she was a rather fascinating person.
