Cora Pongracz's early work from her years in Frankfurt, Munich and London was hardly known until the estate was processed. She developed extensive series with friends from the art scene, who moved playfully outdoors. This already shows Pongracz's interest in the thematic field that was to shape her later work: the photographic representation of people as a lively interplay of self-expression and communication between the protagonists who determine the image. A number of these motifs have been published in the feature pages of renowned daily newspapers, where they illustrate articles on various topics from literature, theatre or social politics.
