Wolfgang Sievers

Wolfgang Sievers fled Nazi Germany at the outbreak of World War II to make his new home in Australia.
This new National Library of Australia publication by Helen Ennis tells the story of Sievers and how his striking images of the post-war manufacturing boom propelled him to fame as one of this country’s leading photographers.
The images in this book are from the National Library’s Wolfgang Sievers photographic archive of more than 65,000 images
Helen Ennis is one of Australia’s leading photographic historians and lectures in Art Theory at the Australian National University in Canberra. She is the author of many books, including Frank Hurley’s Antarctica.
