University of Iowa Professor Emerita Judy Polumbaum has published a new book, Juxtapositions: Images from the Newseum Ted Polumbaum Photo Collection (Gao House Press). The book is a collection of images by photojournalist Ted Polumbaum, designed and edited by Judy Polumbaum, his daughter.

From the Gao House Press website:

"Using the motif of paired pictures, this volume of selections from the vast Ted Polumbaum collection in the Newseum in Washington, D.C. draws attention to human connections across time, culture, and geography that all generations can appreciate. As a photojournalist, Ted Polumbaum documented some of the most important news events and social movements of the second half of the twentieth century. On assignment for the era's great picture magazines as well as through independent projects, he photographed athletes, artists, parades,protests,and more. Above all, traveling throughout the Americas and around the world, he chronicled the lives and aspirations of ordinary people. Along with cameos of political and cultural icons, the book offers a clear and generous vision of the human condition in all its commonality and variety."

Judy Polumbaum is a professor emerita in the School of Journalism & Mass Communication, part of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
