The Beauty of culture by

This book contains a unique collection of black and white photographs. Bob Martin shares some of the work he so passionately created and collected in the 40 years he spent as a South African theater and movie publicity stills photographer. A testament to the extraordinary talent that is Bob Martin. Through his magical lens, Bob not only reveals his chameleon-like empathy with all his subjects but his charming and witty recollections of his various studies also reveal a fascinating and enviable memory of the period. The book portrays a glamorous and artistically rich era, it is also an important record for those South Africans who love and appreciate the beauty, art and culture of theater and the movies.
