About This Image
With Morath's stamp on verso. Title written in pencil on verso of print in unknown hand. A display of dolls and fans.Inge Morath was born in Graz, Austria, in 1923. After studying languages in Berlin, she became a translator, then a journalist and the Austrian editor for Heute, an Information Service Branch publication based in Munich. Morath was a prolific diarist and letter-writer, retaining a dual gift for words and pictures that made her unusual among her colleagues. Morath was at ease anywhere. Some of her most important work consists of portraits, of passers-by as well as celebrities. She was also adept at photographing places: her pictures of Boris Pasternak's home, Pushkin's library, Chekhov's house, Mao Zedong's bedroom, artists' studios and cemetery memorials are permeated with the spirit of invisible people still present.
