An Exile's Eye: the Photography of Wolfgang Suschitzky
Wolfgang Suschitzky left his native Vienna in 1933 and settled in London where he became one of the most influential exponents of the powerful tradition of social documentary fild-making that was at its height betweeen the 1930s and earlly 1970s. He also worked on feature films including Ring of Bright Water, Entertaining Mr Sloane, and the cult classic, Get Carter. Less well-known is the remarkable archive of photographs taken throughout his career. This book exmines and illustrates some of Suschitzky's most enduring and important images, including those taken in Scotland during the 1940s and his much celebrated and innovative portraiture of animals and children.
All photographs illustrated belong to the photographer with the exception of the frontispiece and those on pages 18, 19 and 20 which are in the Scottish National Photography Collection.
