Clemens Kalischer Biography

Clemens Kalischer (born March 30, 1921 in Lindau, Germany) is a photojournalist and art photographer. He emigrated to France via Switzerland (1933) and then to the United States via Morocco (1942). From 1944 through 1946 he studied arts at the Cooper Union. Since 1951 Clemens Kalischer has been living in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. He married Angela Wottitz in 1956. They have two daughters, Cornelia and Tanya and two grandsons.

Clemens Kalischer is a member of ASPP (American Society of Picture Professionals); a member of One by One (an international dialogue group between survivors and perpetrators of the Holocaust) and worked as a freelance photographer of the New York Times, Newsweek, Life, Fortune, Du[disambiguation needed], The Sun, Yankee, Coronet, Country Journal, Moment, Vermont Life, In Context, Jubilee, Yes, Orion, Ploughshares, Common Ground[disambiguation needed], Architectural Forum, Places, Urban Design International, Progressive Architectural, and Time magazine. His work was included in "The Family of Man," a collaboration of Carl Sandburg and Edward Steichen. His series of photographs of displaced persons arriving in New York from DP camps, taken in 1947 and 1948, has been his most recognized work.
