George Mann
George Mann was a vaudeville headliner in the late '20s through the early '40s. Together with his partner Dewy Barto, they formed the comedy dance team of Barto & Mann. George was also a gifted photographer who captured the world he knew, bringing an insider's sensitivity and access to his stunning images.

Some 1,000 images have been hand-picked from the George Mann Archive by Mann's daughter-in-law, commercial photographer Dianne Woods, and made available worldwide through akg-images.
