Fotografie in der Emigration
11.03.2003 - 20.04.2003
An exhibition from the Austrian National Library in cooperation with WestLicht
The show sketches the life story of the Viennese Max Wolf (1892 – 1990). He was not only a successful dermatologist but also an outstanding photographer. In 1938 he succeeded in fleeing from Austria helped by Albert Göring, the brother of the infamous Hermann Göring, and he went to the USA via Yugoslavia having been. Max Wolf found that the counterbalance to his work as a doctor was to be found in the intensive involvement with photography.
