A sunday at the museum

At the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam I saw yesterday a beautiful exhibition about the Berlin-born photographer Marianne Breslauer (1909-2001). Despite her small oeuvre, Breslauer is regarded as one ot the most important avant-garde German photographers of the inter-war years. She made very personal poetic photo's and had worked a.o. with Man Ray. She focused her camera mainly on ordinary people and details at the periphery of city life. I like her portraits of modern liberated women most, they looked so of our time, like this one above. See more photo's of her here.

I will be away for a few days to Germany.
