Gehfotografen, literally “walking photographers”, were active on the streets of cities and tourist destinations across Europe between 1927 and 1935. This type of profession became increasingly popular with the Great Depression, when the 1929 collapse of the New York stock exchange led to an economic crisis throughout Europe. Unemployment and poverty eventually led to a civil war in 1934.

Under such circumstances, studio commissions fell short and professional photographers resorted to alternative sources of income. This was the beginning of what became known in the English-speaking world as street photography.
