Wolfgang Suschitzky, Backyard, Charing Cross Road 1936 © Wolfgang Suschitzky

Tate Britain, London

Following the rise of Fascism in Vienna in the 1930s, brother and sister Edith Tudor-Hart (1908–73) and Wolfgang Suschitzky (1912–2016) found sanctuary in Britain, where both became leading documentary photographers. Raised in an actively social democratic family of Jewish ancestry, their images reflect the politics, class structures and events of mid-twentieth century British life. Tudor-Hart’s subjects range from political protests in Vienna to initiatives for the working classes in late-1930s Britain. Suschitzky’s photographs focus on London as a varied, vibrant city as its inhabitants lived through peace, the Blitz and postwar celebrations. This display offers a rare opportunity to see a substantial group of photographs by brother and sister together.
