“I have always made my own prints, which I think is important. Negatives need interpretation and there is much that can be done in the darkroom.”
Viennese photographer and cinematographer Wolfgang Suschitzky (1912-2016, Austria) is best known for his depictions of London in the 1930s and 1940s. His photographs show his respect and affection for all his subjects; if possible he chose to photograph in natural light, preferably outdoors. Trained at the Austrian State School for Photography, Suschitzky emigrated to the UK in 1935 where he started documenting London’s West End. His work was greatly influenced by the Foto-Auge exhibition of 1929. Since the beginning of the 21st century Suschitzky’s photography has enjoyed heightened attention with his inclusion in a number of group shows, including Another London: International Photographers Capture City Life 1930-80 at Tate Britain in 2012.
