The University Museum and Art Gallery collaborates with the Austrian Consulate for Hong Kong and Macau as well as the Erich Lessing Archive to present the photography of celebrated Magnum photographer Erich Lessing. This catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

Erich Lessing: The Pulse of Time includes documentary images from the pinnacle of Lessing’s career in the 1950s and 1960s, which illustrate the journalist’s ability to be working in the right place at the right time. Lessing reported on many of the most significant political event in post-war Europe and his, now historical, photographs record social and economic change in ever developing societies in both Eastern and Western Europe.

香港大學美術博物館聯同奧地利駐香港及澳門總領事館,以及埃里希‧萊辛資料館,向公眾呈獻著名馬格蘭攝影師埃里希‧萊辛的影像作品。本書是配合是次展覽而出版的圖錄。

是次《埃里希.萊辛:時代脈搏》展覽囊括了萊辛創作於二十世紀五、六十年代事業高峰期的紀錄影像,該系列作品彰顯了他作為記者對於時代及現場的把握能力。萊辛報道了許多戰後歐洲的重大政治事件,而他的這些現已被賦予了歷史性意義的影像作品,也成為不斷發展的東西歐社會及經濟變遷的見證。
