French pho­tog­ra­pher and cin­e­matog­ra­pher of Ro­ma­nian ori­gin, Eli Lo­tar ar­rived in France in 1924. His work was pub­lished in many of the avant-garde pub­li­ca­tions of the day, and fea­tured in sev­eral ma­jor in­ter­na­tional pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tions. An ac­tive mem­ber of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Writ­ers and Artists in his role as head of the pho­tog­ra­phy depart­ment, Lo­tar was a po­lit­i­cally ac­tive artist and his work is a tes­ta­ment to the au­dac­ity, in­no­va­tion and so­cio-po­lit­i­cal ac­tivism that char­ac­terised the in­ter­war pe­riod.
