Approximately 120 photographs by Zoltan Kluger. Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa and other locations in Palestine, ca. 1930s through early 1950s. The collection includes a variety of photographs documenting the Zionist enterprise during the period of the "state in the making". Among the photographs: Moshe Sharett and the High Commissioner Arthur Wauchope attending the funeral of Meir Dizengoff (1936), Mayor of Tel-Aviv Israel Rokach walking by a "Mishmar Ivri" [Tel-Aviv police?] force standing in formation, a photograph from the funeral of Shemaryahu Levin opposite Tel-Aviv Town Hall, soldiers of The Special Night Squads commanded by Orde Wingate, establishing "Tower and Stockade" settlements, sports competitions, fishermen, farmers, Notrim on horse, factories and plants, numerous portrait photographs of pioneers and guarding forces. Aerial photographs of Palestine, and more. Most photographs are ink-stamped on verso with the stamp: "The Orient Press Photo Company (Photo Z. Kluger)" and other ink-stamps, and some are titled and numbered by hand (Hebrew). Zoltan Kluger (1896-1977) was one of the most important photographers in Palestine in the 1930s-40s. At a young age he served as an aerial photographer in the Austro-Hungarian air force, and after World War I immigrated to Berlin where he started working as a press photographer. He immigrated to Palestine in 1933 and opened the "Orient Press Photo Company" together with Nachman Shifrin (Ben-Haim). Kluger was the "House photographer" of the national institutes (mostly Keren HaYesod), and left tens of thousands of negatives documenting extensively the "state in the making". Most remembered is the series of aerial photographs, commissioned by Zalman Schoken on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. In the late 1950s Kluger left Israel for the United States. Not much is known about his last years. He passed away in the United States in 1977. Size and condition vary. Good overall condition. A piece is cut out from the top of one photograph. Provenance: Rimon Family Collection.
