Exhibition Catalogue Leipzig 1932

On September 24, 1932, the Grassi Museum in Leipzig opened the "German and I. International Photo Exhibition of the VDAV". The Society of German Photographers was prominently represented there: "Certainly, it will not have been the intention of the organizing Federation of German Amateur Photographer Societies that the GDL should be so dominant in the overall impression. But it will remain an undisputed merit of the exhibition manager Hans Geißler that he won this group of celebrities for the exhibition", comments Wolf H. Döring in a special report in "Der Photograph".

The full article, which discusses the GDLers' pictorial works in detail, can be read in the DFA's 100th anniversary catalog. Publication date: Fall 2021.
