  • Catalogue Essay

    Grete Stern (1904-1999) and Ellen Auerbach (1906-2004) formed the collaboration " Ringl + Pit "; while students of Walter Peterhans, the first photography professor at the Bauhaus school. Fully engaged in the cultural and social ferment of the time, the women challenged the expectations of their class, culture and sex, and established an advertising photography studio.
    This portfolio was created in collaboration with the Sander Gallery, Ellen Auerbach and Grete Stern, as an overview of the advertising agency’s work from 1929-1933.
