Until Oct 31, 2021 – Online Discussion | Lisl Steiner: The Scheherazade of Photography

Noted Austrian-American photojournalist Lisl Steiner joined Uwe Schögl, photographic expert and historian at the Austrian National Library, in a compelling conversation focusing on Lisl’s personal life, career, photographic work and thoughts on the future. With opening remarks from ACFNY Director Michael Haider and Director of the Picture Archives and Graphics Department at the Austrian National Library Hans Petschar, this virtual discussion is available now on the ACFNY YouTube channel.

“Like Scheherazade, I have woven many stories from my life and photography into something like a coherent narrative of the times I found myself in”, says Lisl Steiner in her 2015 autobiographical book, Lisl, Baby.

Considered to be one of the most unusual personalities in the history of photo journalism, Lisl Steiner is a noted Austrian-American photographer, photojournalist, and documentary filmmaker. Lisl is best known for her photographs of political and cultural figures of the 1950s and 1960s, including Fidel Castro, Louis Armstrong, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Richard Nixon, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., among others.
