With Morath's stamp on verso. Title written in pencil on verso of print in unknown hand. 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.
