Marianne Breslauer (1909 - 2001)



Marianne Breslauer (1909 - 2001) is my current photography muse.  She was part of a small, Germanic circle of female photographers that flourished between the wars. 

Marianne eventually fled Germany to the Netherlands before immigrating permanently to Switzerland.  She married the art dealer Walter Feilchenfeldt and took very few professional photos after 1936.
