New York Times Obituary

IN TIEFER TRAUER
SIEGFRIED FRANZ SPIRA
1924 - 2007



H. Keppler remembers Fred Spira



The Spira Collection is extensive and wide-ranging but...has a clear, underlying rationale which raises it far above other collections and gives it an historic and academic integrity. This wonderful book is a continuation of that process and is a fitting tribute to the world's most outstanding collector in the field of photographic technology.
 -Michael Pritchard FRPS
  Director, Christie's, London

Photography has impacted our lives perhaps more than any other development in modern history.
 -S. F. Spira
