Frieda Riess: Photographic Studio and Salon in Berlin, 1918-1932
Frieda Riess, Asta Nielsen. 1925. Ullstein bild.
BERLIN.- In her time, “Die Riess”, as she was known to her contemporaries, was not only well-known but highly acclaimed by the press. Due to the international character of her clientele, her legendary “tea parties” became a reputation far beyond the boundaries of Berlin. Frieda Riess, born in 1890, originated from a Jewish family of merchants. After World War 1 she had a prestigious studio at the Kurfürstendamm. She portrayed the theatre people, actors, actresses, and writers who came to see her. These were soon followed by dancers, vaudeville stars as well as artists and other illustrious people like diplomats and politicians.

With this solo exhibition and the first catalogue focusing on Riess’ photo studio "Das Verborgene Museum" (The Hidden Museum) continues its exhibition series on “European Female Photographers”.
