The life and work of photographer and spy, Edith Tudor-Hart.

Being a secret agent doesn’t seem to have come naturally to photographer Edith Tudor-Hart (born Edith Suschitzky in 1908, in Vienna, died 1973 in Brighton). When she wasn’t working as a Soviet agent, she was taking photos of Vienna’s and London’s workers and street children, of poverty and social deprivation. She recruited Kim Philby, and was one of the architects of the Cambridge Five, the Soviet Union’s most successful spy ring in Great Britain.

Edith was Jungk’s great aunt, his mother’s cousin; the writer / filmmaker tries to unravel the truth about his aunt’s life, in Austria, Great Britain and Russia.
