Frieda Gertrude Riess

Riess was born in Czarnikau in the Prussian Province of Posen where her Jewish parents were shopkeepers. At the end of the 1890s, the family moved to Berlin where she first studied sculpture under Hugo Lederer (c. 1907) and later photography at the Berlin « Photographischen Lehranstalt », receiving her diploma in the summer of 1915.

In 1918, she opened a business on the prestigious Kurfürstendamm; it became one of the most popular studios in the city. Partly as a result of her marriage to the journalist Rudolf Leonhard in the early 1920s, she extended her clientele to celebrities such as playwright Walter Hasenclever, novelist Gerhart Hauptmann and actors and actresses including Tilla Durieux, Asta Nielsen and Emil Jannings. While on a trip to Italy in 1929, she was invited to photograph Benito Mussolini. In addition, she contributed to the journals and magazines of the day including Die Dame, Berliner Illustrierte Zeitung, Der Weltspiegel, Querschnit and Koralle

Her success in Berlin was however short-lived. In 1932, after falling in love with the elderly French ambassador in Berlin, she moved to Paris with him, disappearing from the public eye. Even the date of her death cannot be clearly established and her place of burial remains unknown  (source wilkipedia)

Atelier Willinger

Laszlo Willinger Sun of Maurus Wilhelm Willinger  &  Margaret Willinger, Austro-Hungarian photographers who are best known for their portraits of actors of the early silent film era in Berlin.

László Josef Willinger was a Jewish-German photographer, most noted for his portrait photography of movie stars and celebrities starting in 1937.

He was born on April 16, 1909  Budapest, Hungary . Willinger established photographic studios in Paris and Berlin in 1929 and 1931 respectively, and at the same time submitted his photographs to various newspapers as a freelance contributor. He left Berlin in 1933 when Adolf Hitler became chancellor, settling and working in Vienna, where he began to photograph such celebrities as Marlene Dietrich, Hedy Lamarr, Pietro Mascagni, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, and Max Reinhardt.

By the mid-1930s he was travelling through Africa and Asia before being invited by studio photographer Eugene Robert Richee to move to the United States.

He crossed into the United States at Mexicali, Mexico on December 20, 1937 and resided in Los Angeles, California.

After establishing a studio in Hollywood, California, Willinger became a frequent contributor to magazines and periodicals, providing magazine cover portraits of some of the most popular stars. Willinger was one of the first Hollywood photographers to experiment in the use of color.

In later years, shortly before his death, Willinger was accused of stalking some celebrities of the time, including Charlie Chaplin. An investigation into the matter led to the uncovering of thousands of personal pictures of the male comedy star ( source wilkipedia.)

All the photgraphy are undated, but we can make the hypothesis, since it has settled in viennia in which these date from this time around 1930
