Grete Stern was an emigre from Nazi Germany who moved to England and finally to Argentina. The images in her work grow into new images. I find her work exciting and very clever. If I had seen her work when I was young I would have said that she had a great influence on me. Many of her(visual) ideas are similar to my own. But I only discovered her recently.Although much of her work had a commercial/utilitarian purpose, illustrating dreams of readers of a woman’s magazine, the images stand on their own without explanation.
