Ilse Bing and Ellen Auerbach Two Film portraits by Antonia Lerch

Monday Movies

Ilse Bing and Ellen Auerbach – both were of Jewish descent and born around 1900 in Germany. They studied in Germany and emigrated in the 1930s. Each was an exceptional photographer.

In 1992, Antonia Lerch, documentary maker from Berlin, visited the artists in New York. She lets them speak for themselves, gently, without comment or making a show of it. The results are direct, touching movies in which personality history, contemporary history, and the history of photography flow together in a harmonious way. A stirring cultural testimony to a past generation.
