Wolfgang Suschitzky - Photographer

For a few years now, I have subscribed to the daily blog written by The Gentle Author. I'd like to share today's post which is about a consummate photographer. Steve (Ricoh), I think this might resonate with you especially.

Re: Wolfgang Suschitzky - Photographer

Thanks David, I enjoyed reading about Wolfgang and viewing some of his marvellous images that he created. Historical urban record fascinates me; I know you have to be careful for what you wish, but I'd love to travel back in time with my camera - as long as I could be back for teatime in my own home.

Re: Wolfgang Suschitzky - Photographer

Fascinating photographs. What jumps out at me is the lack of people on the streets and traffic on the roads. If you took a photograph at any of those locations today you'd have trouble seeing anything for the mass of people and cars.

Re: Wolfgang Suschitzky - Photographer

Thanks to Dave for brining to our attention this great photographer. I for one had never come across him previously, wonderful evocative pictures, very much in the mould of Henri Cartier Bresson. I Googled him to see more of his work and recommend others to do the same, you wont be disappointed. Stunning shot of London Zoos Guy the Gorrila a stand out for me. Ian.

I've just done the same using Pinterest - today and for many days more he's become my Usain Bolt of photography

Re: Wolfgang Suschitzky - Photographer

It's worth scrolling down to the link leading to the article about Wolfgang's sister, also a photographer and a very naughty girl by all accounts

Being of a certain vintage, I remember Guy the Gorilla well. I lived quite near London Zoo and used to get the occasional day's casual work in the restaurants during the school holidays. Fifteen bob a day, plus two shillings worth of food vouchers. Hard work washing plates all day!.

As reported she did seem to be a naughty girl; Corbyn and McDonnell would have had her knighted, possibly.
She's accused of staging, and if so she was a bad girl. Much prefer her brother's work.

Probably used a grain magnifier and twiddled the height adjustment to get the grain in focus, as it is done today. Can't beat it.

Re: Wolfgang Suschitzky - Photographer

"Edith Tudor-Hart (née Edith Suschitzky; 1908–1973) was an Austrian-British photographer, communist-sympathiser and spy for the Soviet Union. Some of her work is in the National Gallery in London. Brought up in a family of socialists, she trained in photography at Walter Gropius's Bauhaus in Dessau, and carried her political ideals through her art. Through her connections with Arnold Deutsch, Tudor-Hart was instrumental in the recruiting of the Cambridge Spy ring which damaged British intelligence from World War II until their discovery in the late 1960s."

That's quite a CV.

I was at medical school with a less radical scion of the family, Gary T-H.
