- DescriptionEmmy Andriesse (1914-1953) is one of the most important 20th century women photographers, best kwn for her indelible portrayal of Amsterdam's Hunger Winter of 1944 - 1945, w emblematic of civilian suffering during the Second World War. Andriesse was born into a liberal Dutch Jewish family. She was trained at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague under the aegis of Gerrit Kiljan and Paul Schuitema who pioneered the New Photography , based on Bauhaus principles - as well as encouraging students to experiment with its role as a documentary medium.
