‘Quite content to be called a good craftsman’ – an exploration of Wolf Suschitzky’s extensive contributions to the field of applied photography between 1935 and 1955

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This essay foregrounds Austrian émigré Wolf Suschitzky’s contributions to the field of applied photography in Britain between 1935 and 1955. In particular, it focuses on three practical manuals on photographing children and animals, and two illustrated children’s books. A second aim of this essay has been to track some of the creative professional émigré circles within which Suschitzky moved during his first decade in exile and to explore how these intersected and diverged. Suschitzky also developed strong working relations with respected members of the British establishment, who supported his career by commissioning work from him.
