Auerbach, Ellen

▪ 2005
Ellen Rosenberg; “Pit” 
      German-born avant-garde photographer (b. May 20, 1906, Karlsruhe, Ger.—d. July 31, 2004, New York, N.Y.), created innovative experimental advertising images and portraits, particularly during the Weimar Republic (1919–33). Auerbach studied in Berlin with Walter Peterhans of the Bauhaus design school. When Peterhans relocated to Dessau, Auerbach and fellow student Grete Stern took over his Berlin studio, opening a commercial photography studio that they called ringl + pit after their respective nicknames. The studio's work, influenced by Constructivism and Surrealism, was widely exhibited, and in 1933 ringl + pit won first prize at an international exhibition in Brussels. That same year, however, with the rise of the Nazi Party in Germany, both women fled the country. Auerbach and her husband eventually settled in the U.S., where she became a citizen in 1942. Although she never again knew such professional success, the work of ringl + pit was rediscovered in the late 1980s, and a major retrospective was staged at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin in 1998.
