marianne breslauer was part of man ray's circle and of the cosmopolitan scene in the 1920's and early 30's. breslauer produced memorable portraits of the famously androgynous swiss travel writer annemarie schwarzenbach who experimented with drugs and died tragically young. breslauer described schwarzenbach as : "neither a woman, neither a man, but an angel, an archangel..." She also took street photographs utilising the new light cameras of the time - typified by the leica, introduced in 1925 - to look at the world from unexpected vantage points.
