For Her 100th Birthday

Opens: Friday, 26 May 2023, 7 pm
Exhibition run: 27 May − 29 July 2023

FOTOHOF / Inge-Morath-Platz 1-3 / 5020 Salzburg / Austria

Inge Morath has become famous for her impressive black and white portraits and reportages. On the occasion of her 100th birthday, FOTOHOF is showing for the first time a large selection of her color works. Like many of her colleagues, she took color photographs primarily on slide film. These were primarily used for printing in illustrated magazines, but Inge Morath also used them again and again in her photo books. She herself has said that she photographs color where she sees color.

For a long time it was very difficult and expensive to produce high quality exhibition pictures from 35mm slides. Only since the possibility of digitizing slides and printing them on baryte paper has a quality been achieved that has its place on gallery walls. In addition, the color works of Inge Morath are a valuable contribution to photographic history, which for various reasons has received too little attention up to now.

It is to the credit of John P. Jacob, the former director of the Inge Morath Estate in New York, to have edited these color works and published them for the first time in the illustrated book "First Color" in 2009. FOTOHOF has made a selection from them for the current exhibition.
John P. Jacob will attend the opening of the exhibition and will give a lecture the next day at the Museum der Moderne Rupertinum (where the exhibition Inge Morath & Saul Steinberg / Maske und Gesicht is on view until June 4).

The original image data was made available to FOTOHOF by the Inge Morath Estate with the kind support of Sana Manzoor. The staff of the FOTOHOF archive printed the works.

The exhibition features a large cross-section of Inge Morath's color works in the main room. In the studio, FOTOHOF archiv will show an overview of illustrated magazines and books from the 1950s, which give an insight into the world of color pictures of that time, and a selection of biographical documents and pictures of Inge Morath.

To accompany the exhibition, the FOTOHOF edition will publish the catalog "Wo ich Farbe sehe" with Inge Morath's color illustrations and a text by John P. Jacob.


Press previews and meetings with artists and curators can be scheduled by appointment. Please call us on +43 662 849296 or email us at fotohof@fotohof.at to arrange a date.
