Research: Information on the work and life of Charlotte Marx (assistant of Adolf Morath)

As part of my research on the photographer Adolf Morath I came across the (German born?) photographer Charlotte Marx who was his assistant during the 1950s and 1960s. According to the archival files she joined the Royal Photographic Society in 1963 and gained her Associate the same year.

Apart from this, I have pratically no information on her life, her education and her work as a photographer. I am thankful for any information on Charlotte Marx or any assistants who worked with Adolf…

Research: Information on the photographer Adolf Morath (born 1905)

I am looking for information on the German born industrial photographer Adolf (sometimes Adolph) Morath who worked extensively for British Petroleum and the Kuwaiti Oil Company in the mid-20th century, photographing oil workers, their daily life and the company facilities in Kuwait and other places. Despite his huge portfolio, there seems to be hardly any information on Morath. I would be very thankful for any information, material or recommendation where to look.

Hi Laura,

Here is the exhibition catalogue. There were (I think) several articles in Colvilles Magazine (I don't have a full run of the 1950s issues while I work from home). I will post scans of those when I have gone through them. Image no.43 in the catalogue must be from that series. I would love to know where those photos are as they would make a wonderful exhibition here in Lanarkshire.

Having looked-up Adolf Morath's address on streetview I see you are correct that the exhibition was not held there!

Best wishes,

Justin

Dear Laura,

I did not go with Morath to the middle East but another female student from the Ealing School of Photography did. I cannot remember her name but Michael Brown who is now head of the School may be able to find out. 

michael@picturehouse.org I do remember seeing a photograph of a wellhead.

I also remember Charlotte Marx as far as I am aware she and her mother managed to escape from Nazi Germany and came to England she taught me colour printing at Ealing, which was the work she did for Morath. I think that she then became the chief colour printer for the BBC. Gilly Read
