Kompilation: Frau in Salon (192?) / Frau auf Dachboden (192?) / Mann und Frau vor Vorhang (1924)

DFF - Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum

Portraits of women taken in the early 1920s and a portrait of a woman and a man taken on June 16, 1924. The latter portrait possibly shows Alfred Träger and his wife. Since the 1910s, Oskar Barnack, the inventor of the Leica, has captured events around Wetzlar on film with his self-constructed film camera. He documented flood disasters, city festivals, medical experiments, sporting events and the company where he was employed as chief designer: the Optical Works Ernst Leitz in Wetzlar. His films form the basis of a film archive in which local history has the same place as the effects of great historical events.
