Between 1977 and 1980, photographer Charles H. Traub ventured onto the streets of Chicago, New York and various European cities to take photographs of their inhabitants–male and female, young and old-at lunchtime. Lunchtime is the first comprehensive publication of these striking color images, which were exhibited in the early 1980s in Chicago, New York and Milan.

Photographing Grant: No Perfect Heroes
The story of Ulysses S Grant is an American epic practically without equal. Hollywood couldn’t dream it up. Even to this day Grant’s persona and his will to succeed are an enigma to historians and fiction writers alike. How can anyone explain one-hundred-and-fifty years later, the psychology that drove this great general: an undaunted will to move forward, innate self confidence despite repeated failure, precision of language and forthrightness of character. He demanded unconditional surrender but offered humility and generosity to those he defeated.
