Works by Dr. Erich Salomon

Works by Dr. Erich Salomon at Iwan Baan Photography. "...Dubbed the 'King of Indiscretion,' Dr. Erich Salomon (1886-1944) was one of the world’s first photo journalists and the inventor of candid camera photography. With his fast, extremely light-sensitive camera, he turned the numerous conference rooms of international politics into 'unsafe territory' during the interbellum: the Reichstag in Berlin, the League of Nations in Geneva, the conferences on German reparations in the Hague. But it was not just famous politicians of the era, such as Sir Austen Chamberlain, Gustav Stresemann and Aristide Briand, whom he caught in his lens at unguarded moments, but also Albert Einstein, newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, composer Richard Strauss and Marlene Dietrich." Also... Erich Salomon: Vintage Work at Hasted Hunt Gallery.
