Max Wolf Photographing in Exile

Many notable photographic experts came to the press conference of this exhibition which was staged in cooperation with the Austrian National Library. The show, which presented works from the estate of Max Wolf, closed a gap in the history of Austrian photography, in particular amateur photography and, at the same time, it wrote a chapter of emigrant history. The curators, Prof. Erich Lessing and Dr. Ulla Fischer-Westhauser, chose interesting examples from over 2000 black and white prints. The show was open by Dr. Johanna Rachinger, the general director of the National Library.
