The salvation of photography comes from the experiment. A modernist and a restless experimentalist from the outset, the Hungarian-born artist was shaped by Dadaism , Suprematism , Constructivism , and debates about photography.

Over the years, she slowly managed to salvage some of it, including a sheaf of 73 lightweight cardboard sheets, each with nine contact prints, approximately 6 x 9cm in size, pasted onto one side in portrait format. The sheaf was accompanied by additional contact prints and strips, negatives, enlargements, paper folders and envelopes from photoshops in Germany, Switzerland and England. But, when Fiedler observed the sheaf of cardboard sheets she was transfixed. Fiedler proceeded to undertake painstaking research, which involved travelling across Europe to identify the people and places depicted in the images.
