Laelia Goehr: Photographer
29 October 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Cellist and photographer Julia Crockatt will be in conversation with independent researcher John March about her remarkable grandmother Laelia Goehr (1908-2002). Born into a well-to-do Jewish family in Kiev, she showed a talent for music from an early age. Soon after the Russian Revolution, the family moved to Berlin (via Warsaw), where Laelia in due course became part of a successful cabaret duo called The Stone Sisters. In 1930 she married the conductor and composer Walter Goehr, and in 1933 the couple fled to the safety of England, where, having worked as Bill Brandt’s assistant, she established herself as a serious photographer.
This talk coincides with the launch of a website, which for the first time reveals the true extent of her photographic output, which ranged from images of dancers and eminent musicians such as Stravinsky and Rostropovich through street photography to nudes, flowers and animals. This event is held in partnership with Four Corners, London, where earlier this year, Goehr’s work featured in the exhibition Another Eye.
