Martin Munkácsi's lost photographic archive
Hungarian photographer Martin Munkácsi (1896–1963) was the most famous (and well paid) fashion photographer of his time. He was best known for bringing motion into fashion photography and influenced photographers like Richard Avedon. His photographic estate was lost since 1963, when he died impoverished and forgotten in New York. In 2007 the archive of 4000 negatives turned up again
at Ebay, where they were offered for 1 Mio dollars. The International Center of Photography purchased the negatives and displays vintage and modern prints and some of these negatives now in an exhibition in New York.
