De catalogus bij de prachtige tentoonstelling in het Joods Historisch Museum (15 juli - 13 november). In just 10 years, Marianne Breslauers career as a photographer had marked her out as an ambitious photojournalist of the late Weimar Republic, before emigration and the outbreak of war brought this auspicious beginning to an abrupt halt. Educated from 1927-1929 at the renowned Lette-Haus in Berlin, Marianne Breslauer went next to Paris. Her first posting is no one less than Man Ray, who, approvingly, tells the 20-year-old that she can do everything already and warmly invites her to make use of his studio. She gladly takes up the offer, yet her intrinsic domain is the street: the quays of the Seine, the Jardin du Luxembourg, the street performers on the Rue dOrléans. With these photos she attracts the attention of the illustrated German newspapers, who soon furnish her with commissions. She photographs the Whos Who of the art world in the late 1920s in Berlin, travels to Spain with Annemarie Schwarzenbach, and portrays Erika Manns cabaret, The Pepper Mill, in Zurich. With an infallible intuition for atmosphere and compositional ingenuity, she captures the essence of life in an era coming to a close. In 1936 she ultimately has to emigrate from Germany taking all her photography materials in her bag. The photographer Marianne Breslauer was only around for a single, brief decade. Following the Second World War, she became the art dealer Marianne Feilchenfeldt. Now, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of her birth, the photographer is to be rediscovered anew. In this richly illustrated catalogue of works, her distinctive pictures will finally be visible once more.
