IN PICTURES! In the 1920s, a generation of women took charge of the freedoms offered between two world wars. Photographic technology offered a new means of capturing the immediacy of that life.

Marianne Breslauer studied photography in Berlin; her portrait photographs mastered the emergent style, “Neues Sehen”.

In Paris, she snatched moments of life off the streets, in parks and along the Seine, with tramps and street performers. Breslauer later travelled to Palestine, Spain and Italy, documenting her experiences with photo reportage.
