Wolfgang Suschitzky a famous photographer who hailed from Austria, died recently at the age of 104. Here are a couple of obituaries from the Guardian.
He originally moved to Britain in the 1930s to escape Hitler, hence much of his photography work covered Britain (as well as quite extensively abroad). He was shocked by how much poverty there was in Britain and documented much of what he discovered. His sister, Edith Tudor Hart, was also a photographer.
At the outset of the world war Suschitzky became a documentary cameraman, eventually moving into Hollywood motion film. Some of his most famous films shot include Entertaining Mr Sloane and Get Carter.
Suschitzky lived at Maida Avenue in London’s Little Venice.
