Erich Lessing’s photographs are amongst the most influential pictures of the post-war era. The famous Magnum photographer captured Europe’s upheaval, and forever enshrined himself in the collective memory of Austria with the photograph of Leopold Figl proudly displaying the Independence Treaty on the balcony of the Belvedere. In Der Fotograf vor der Kamera, Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel accompany Erich Lessing in his daily routine at work and in his search for that which defines his photos: longing and hope.
