Born Dora Kallamus in 1881 into a privileged Jewish family from Vienna, Madame d’Ora purchased her first camera at the age of 23 on a trip in the South of France, the first step to becoming one of Europe’s leading photographic portraitists of the 20th Century.
This lecture charts her entire career from her work as a true pioneer as one the first woman to open up a photography studio in Vienna, a field dominated by men, to her work a following WW2. Dora turned her lens from portraits of high society towards people in displaced person camps and then worked on another haunting series which included the Parisian slaughter houses. This lecture demonstrates her exceptional ability to capture both the essence of beauty and the pathos of death and suffering.
