ERICH LESSING: THE PULSE OF TIME-CAPTURING SOCIAL CHANGE IN POST-WAR EUROPE
< Back

27 Nov 2015 - 14 Feb 2016

The University Museum and Art Gallery collaborates with the Austrian Consulate for Hong Kong and Macau as well as the Erich Lessing Archive to present the photography of celebrated Magnum photographer Erich Lessing. The Pulse of Time includes documentary images from the pinnacle of Lessing’s career in the 1950s and 1960s, which illustrate the journalist’s ability to be working in the right place at the right time. Lessing reported on many of the most significant political event in post-war Europe and his, now historical, photographs record social and economic change in ever developing societies in both Eastern and Western Europe.
