Almost 100 years ago to the day, Inge Morath was born in Graz. To commemorate this centenary, the Magnum photographer’s work will be showcased throughout 2023 in various exhibitions (with a focus on her temporary home in Salzburg) and new publications—much of this under the auspices of the Fotohof, which has done a great deal to promote Morath’s work in her former homeland (and which, logically enough, is located in Salzburg’s Lehen district on Inge-Morath-Platz, the naming of which was initiated by the same institution).
Inge Morath, a trained linguist and translator, first worked as an editor for various newspapers before she turned to the camera in the early 1950s under the influence of Henri Cartier-Bresson and his precise image composition. Her first major assignments followed shortly thereafter, taking her to various metropolises around the globe. In addition to her commissioned work for the Magnum photo agency, Morath pursued independent photographic projects during her many travels, which allowed her to devote herself to her personal interests beyond the mainstream. At the same time, her photographs also testify to “her empathy, her lack of narcissism, her curiosity about other human beings and cultures, and her deep hope that art could be a candle against the darker elements of human nature,” as her daughter Rebecca Miller explains in the preface to the opulent volume Inge Morath. Hommage (Schirmer/Mosel, 2022).
The focus of the present issue, conceived by Pia Draskovits for EIKON and tracing the most important stages of Morath’s life, is also intended to pay homage to the work of this extraordinary photographer on the occasion of the jubilee.
