The following is an introduction taken from wolf suschitzky photos.., by the editors.
170 photographs are spread around Wolf's London flat, ready for publication, while, enthralled, we listen to the photographer explaining how each of them was conceived. Once we have returned to Vienna with the material we heard so much about, we lay the pictures out before us and try to put some order into our still rather unsorted memories. Very soon we realise that their wealth lies not only within the photographs themselves but also in what Wolf has shared with us: where, when and on what occasions his pictures were taken. The photographs speak for themselves and as each thus also tells its own story, we do not want to withhold from readers and viewers what they told us. The book's chapters have been structured to follow the narrative principle outlined above, with our introductory texts serving to lead the way through Wolf Suschitzky's photographic life.
