There are some original Morath photographs with industrial scenes mounted on cardboard in the V&A photographic collections, otherwise I don't know of any collection in a public institutions. Most likely, the photographs are with the companies themselves. Are you interested in Morath's photographs of the British steel industry in particular?

Thank you so much for your post on Adolf Morath! If it's possible I would love a cooy of the 1957 exhibition catalogue you mentioned. Morath's address in London was 14 a/b Cornwall Gardens, therefore I guess the exhibition must have been shown (also) at his studio.

According to my findings, in 1957 Morath had an exhibition "Industry Through My Colour Camera", at the Ceylon Tea Centre, 22 Lower Regent Street, London; opened January 28 - February 7, 1957 that was sponsored by the Manchester Guardian; May 27-31, 1957 this exhibition (?) was shown at the Industrial Gas Development Centre, Whitworth Street West.

You are also mentioning an article with Morath's photographs in the Colvilles Magazine. Would you also have a copy of this article?

Thank you so much!
