To coincide with the exhibition Lessing Presents Lessing
at the ACF London, CineClub will screen an intimate cinematic portrait of the Austrian Magnum photographer Erich Lessing. The
film follows Lessing as he sits on the managing board of the
photographic cooperative Magnum Photos, at tumultuous family meetings
and in his daily routine at his studio with his co-workers. According to Lessing, good photography inspires us to continue reflecting on it. Similarly, The Photographer in Front of the Camera
invites its audience to view the works of this extraordinary artist in a new light as well.
Austria, 2014, 66 min, German with English subtitles, directed by Tizza Covi & Rainer Frimmel
