From 23 October 2019 to 24 February 2020, for its annual presentation of the Thomas Friedrich Research Grant in Photography, the Berlinische Galerie is showing works by the photojournalist Fritz Eschen (1900–1964). He quickly made his name from 1928 with genre depictions and landscapes, but Eschen’s career came to an abrupt end when the Nazis took power because his origins were Jewish. He survived the holocaust, however, and in 1945, after the Nazi regime was toppled, he took photographs of people in war-torn Berlin. He also made portraits of celebrities from the arts, politics and academic life.
