Born in 1912 in Vienna.
Suschitzky is perhaps best known for his collaboration with Paul Rotha in the 1940s and his work on Mike Hodges' 1971 film GET CARTER.
Andrew Pulver has described Suschtizky as "a living link to the prewar glory days of the British documentary movement."
His photographs have been exhibited at the National Gallery, the Austrian Cultural Forum in London and The Photographer's Gallery, and appear in many international photography collections. He is the father of cinematographer Peter Suschitzky (born 1941) and classical musician and writer Misha Donat.
Published numerous photography manuals, especially on photographing children and animals.
