As Official Photography Partner of Photokina 2016, Leica will be staging the Masters of Photography exhibition at the world photography trade fair.
Every day up until the opening of the Photokina on September 20, we will be presenting one of the pictures series. Today it is From Strasbourg to London – from Hübschmann to Hutton by Kurt Hutton.
A precise chronicler and sensitive portraitist, Kurt Hutton (1893-1960) is counted among the most important pioneers of English photojournalism. A Leica provided him with the necessary flexibility and mobility for his photography. He began his career as a photo journalist in 1930 at the Berlin Dephot photo agency set up by Simon Guttmann. After emigrating to England in 1934, he changed his surname from Hübschmann to Hutton in 1937. He worked for Weekly Illustrated and as of October 1930 belonged to the first staff of Picture Post. Kurt Hutton is featured in the 7/2016 issue of LFI, available as of 20 September.
