    Re: The greatest fashion photographer you’ve never heard of

    Aha! I went to the Leopold Museum in Vienna a couple summers ago and happened to see this exhibition there. It's really good. I was a little familiar with the artistic ferment of early 20th century Vienna and the famous painters of that period, but didn't know anything about Dora Kallmus, so it was a welcome surprise.

    The exhibition writeup mentions her photos of the designer Emilie Flöge wearing her avant garde dresses. Flöge was a companion/friend of Gustav Klimt, and the big Klimt exhibition that was also there in 2018 showed a number of contemporary photos of Flöge and Klimt wearing such costumes, acting out skits, and the like. (To my surprise, Klimt seems to have been good company; while Egon Schiele may have lived down to the tortured-Expressionist image.)

    Related to what Bill said, it was interesting to me how much of the famed Viennese avant-garde arts of the turn of the century (including the crafts and applied arts, etc) was sponsored by the patronage of the Viennese Jewish upper middle class.
