The renowned Austrian-born photographer and word-smith began her artistic journey with a career in translation and journalism. Before her gift in photography was fully realized, Morath also worked for Heute as the magazine’s Austrian editor, teaming up with photographer Ernst Haas to write articles to accompany his photographs. A sample of Morath and Haas’ collaborative work found its way to Robert Capa, who invited the pair to Paris to join the burgeoning Magnum Photos agency in 1949. Morath began working as an editor and researcher for Magnum, but only a couple of years later moved to London, utterly enthralled with photography. She took on an apprenticeship with Simon Guttman, the editor of Picture Post, and began to sell her photographs under the name “Egni Tharom” before moving back to Paris to work at Magnum Photos as a photojournalist. Morath’s work at Magnum also brought her into close contact with Henri Cartier-Bresson, whom she learned from exponentially.

This performance will take place live in the Marly room at the MFA. To ensure the health and safety of our visitors and staff, face masks are recommended while inside the museum at all times.
