Inge Morath: Her Life and Photographs
(1000 items available)
This book provides a survey of the work of Austrian-born American photographer Inge Morath (1923–2002). Surviving the Allied bombing of the Berlin factory where she worked, Morath, originally a journalist, became one of the woman photographers to join the Magnum agency. This volume gathers more than 150 photographs and documents that delineate the main phases of Morath’s career, emphasising the humanitarian empathy that characterised all of her production. A formidable intellectual and diversely talented, Morath eventually established herself as a photographer with an unsentimental and direct approach, and also become an early pioneer and champion of color photography.Included here are some of Morath’s most influential reportages, from her portrayal of Venice to her gorgeous images of the Danube river; and images taken in countries ranging from Spain to Russia, from Iran to China, to Romania, the US and her native Austria.
