I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Erich Lessing is among Austria’s most celebrated photographers.


He is a chronicler of the post-war era, has documented major political events, capturing the protagonists with his camera in an inimitable manner.

As a Jewish child in Vienna, Lessing experienced persecution and the expulsion of his family from their home. After his return to Austria in 1945 he became a photo reporter for Associated Press and a member of Magnum Photos.

This unique exhibition, curated by the photographer’s daughter Hannah Lessing and Danielle Spera, director of the Jewish Museum Vienna, offers a very personal insight into the work of a great photographer.

This exhibition is on loan from the Jewish Museum Vienna.
