Publisher's Description: 
  
Jules Aarons: Street Portraits 1947-1976 provides a moving retrospective of moments of everyday life, as captured by one man, whose profession was not that of photographer but rather a scientist specializing in ionospheric radio-wave propagation. Wherever his work and family took him, Aarons would go, camera in hand, eyes open to the different people, places and times he could see reflected in his 6 x 6 Rolleiflex. From the West and North Ends of Boston, where he, his wife and two sons were based for much of their lives, to Europe, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Peru, Aarons studied, worked and photographed. The results are these starkly black-and-white images of the children, shopkeepers, ladies in fur coats, men in fedoras, gypsies, strongmen and shoppers of a not unfamiliar time and place. These photographs are on view at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, MA.
