Willem van de Poll
Born in Amsterdam in 1895, Willem van de Poll moved to Vienna in 1919 to train, and shortly after, began his career as an independent itinerant press photographer throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Indonesia. He enjoyed great success not only in photojournalism for various magazines and news agencies but also in advertising photography and fashion reporting for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. His career expanded to a multitude of industries and influential circles, and during WWII, he became the house photographer for the Dutch Royal Family.
