»Photography is a strange phenomenon... You trust your eye and cannot help but bare your soul.« – Inge Morath

OstLicht presents a selection of mostly signed photographs by the Austrian Magnum photographer Inge Morath. In addition to her iconic works, the finely selected exhibition also provides insight into the multi-faceted and lesser-known life's work of the tireless photojournalist.
The selection ranges from Morath's classics, the American street photographs, which were mainly taken in New York, to her well-known photo reportage from Spain, portraits of artists and celebrities, to quieter stagings and landscape photographs. Marilyn Monroe, Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Jayne Mansfield, and Louise Bourgeois have had their pictures taken by her. Despite the variety of subjects, Morath's work is united by its intimacy with the many cultures of the world and their portrayed people.
