Among those artists who joined the exodus out of Germany once it became clear that the National Socialists weren't kidding was the soon-to-be eminent photojournalist Kurt Hutton. In 1938 he signed on to the staff of Picture Post, Britain's answer to the American weeklies Life and Look. Here is a sampling of his work, focused exclusively on life in Britain, such as it was, from the late 1930s to the mid 1950s.
"And may it be said of us, both in dark passages and in bright days, in the words of Tennyson that my brothers quoted and loved, and that have special meaning for me now:
'I am a part of all that I have met
Tho much is taken, much abides
That which we are, we are --
One equal temper of heroic hearts
Strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.'
For me, a few hours ago, this campaign came to an end.
For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die."

Flushing -- This isn't the latest scene from a horror movie, but Janice Zupan of Detroit shows appropriate fright nevertheless at the General Motors building in the World's Fair site in Flushing, New York. The press previewed the enormous GM Futurama exhibit, and one of the segments was an animated octopus being probed under seas. Janice was an added attraction to this unusual feature. (1964)
