Hedda Hammer Morrison (1908-1991, born in Stuttgart, Germany) was part of the ‘family’ of photographers and travellers who were drawn there to picture China for western audiences. During her thirteen years in China (from 1933 to 1946), Hedda first managed a German owned commercial photographic studio. Later, she continued to work as a freelance photographer taking thousands of shots that now afford a fascinating record of pre-revolutionary lifestyles, streetscapes, craftspeople at work, street vendors, religious and folk customs, or architectural structures that in many cases have changed or have been destroyed.
