"This is appalling and depressing news. Our photographic collections are so important and need to be preserved and seen by the public. We have so much expertise available which is lost when curators are no longer employed. It is also good to…"

Dear Gilly,
Thank you for your message! Yes, Morath's Kuwait episodes interest me most and it has been really difficult to find information on this period of his life. Thank you for the contact, I will see if Michael Brown has an idea.

I also came across the name of Charlotte Marx and that she might have been an assistant of Morath. Would you remember in which years Charlotte was working for him? When did you start (and stop) working for Morath?

All the best,
Laura
