Wolf Suschitzky (1912-2016) was trained as a photographer at the Austrian State School of Photography in Vienna. With fascism on the rise, he emigrated to Amsterdam in 1934, and to London in the following year where he started working as a photographer for the illustrated press. He's best known for his versatility and his ability to apply himself to different situations. Each of his photographs conveys key elements of his attitude as a photographer: curiosity, fascination, spontaneity, as well as a genuine concern and respect for those who he photographed.
