Edith Tudor Hart - In the Shadow of Tyranny

Duncan Forbes, Anton Holzer, Roberta McGrath

Among the first ranks of the socially motivated photographers in the 1930s, such as Paul Strand or Tina Modotti, was the Viennese photographer Edith Tudor-Hart (1908-1973). She took an introductory course at the Bauhaus in Dessau, and because of her political activities and Jewish origin, she fled to Great Britain with her English husband in 1933.

Tudor-Hart used a medium-format camera for her sensitive black-and-white photographs, shooting pictures from the hip, which allowed her to communicate freely with her models while working. This volume features her unpretentious, documentary-style photographs on social themes, which were taken in Vienna, London, Wales, and Scotland.
