Olga Solarics and her husband Adorja’n von Wlassics were the founders of Studio Manassé in Vienna in 1922. The studio was enormously successful in portrait and erotic photography, but it was the influence of surrealism, particularly on Olga, that resulted in photographs that incorporated experimental techniques and offered humorous, often absurd takes on desire and traditional sexual roles.
