Patternmaking At Australian Glass Manufacturing, Spotswood, Victoria

1956/1970s. Silver gelatin photograph, annotated “2142-R” in pencil with photographer’s stamp verso, 24.6 x 19.9cm. Slight indentations to image centre.

Stamp includes “Wolfgang Sievers, photographer. 52 Edward St, Sandringham, 3191, Melbourne, Australia.”

Born in Berlin, Sievers attended Contempora School for Applied Arts, which followed Bauhaus philosophy and subsequently influenced Sievers. He emigrated to Australia in 1938, and specialised first in architectural photography, then in industrial photography, with dramatic images showing the relationship between worker and machine. Prior to his latter years, Sievers’ photography was mostly seen in commercial displays and annual reports. His work is represented in major Australian and overseas institutions. Ref: Wiki.
