Leonore Mau
1916 (Leipzig, DE) – 2013 (Hamburg, DE)

After training as a press photographer, Leonore Mau discovered her true calling when she met the writer Hubert Fichte in the late 1960s. On their ethnological journeys to the Caribbean, South America and Africa, Mau concentrated on documenting Afro-American religious rites.
