The new collection of never-seen-before images by the 1930s/wartime correspondent in Asia Mel Jacoby, A Danger Shared is now available here from Blacksmith Books. It contains an amazing array of photographs from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Macao, and Chungking as well as French Indochina, the Philippines and Australia. The pictures and Mel’s story are annotated by Bill Lascher and there’s an introduction by me. An exclusive run of images from Chungking, China’s wartime capital, ran in the South China Morning Post weekend magazine recently – here.
