"Thank you so much for sharing your memories, knowledge and insights with me! Thanks Michael Pritchard for the link, that looks promising! I assume there is no archive responsible for his oeuvre?"

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.See More
