Event Description

It is a striking fact that a significant number of the photographers who found refuge in Britain in the 1930s started their professional lives as musicians and/or made a speciality of taking pictures of musicians and composers, many of whom were personal friends. This event will not only reveal a rich array of musical images, many of them less well-known than they ought to be, but also evoke the deeply cultured milieu in which so many refugees from Nazism lived, both in their countries of origin and in the UK.

Photographic historian Amanda Hopkinson will talk about her mother, photographer Gerti Deutsch as well as fellow Austrian-born photographer and friend of Gerti, Lotte Meitner-Graf. Cellist and photographer Julia Crockatt, daughter of composer Alexander Goehr, and granddaughter of conductor and composer Walter Goehr, will talk about her photographer grandmother Laelia Goehr, and picture editor and researcher, (formerly at Getty Images), Leon Meyer will consider the work of Czech-born photographer Erich Auerbach.

The event will be chaired by singer and teacher at the Royal College of Music, Nobert Meyn, founder of Ensemble Émigré and the Music, Migration and Mobility project.

This event is held in partnership with Music, Migration and Mobility
