Photographer Felix Man, born in Germany in 1893, developed an early interest in photography due to a failed school photograph flash. He began as a self-taught photographer at age 11, later studying fine art and art history at the University of Munich. After the First World War, he moved to Berlin, initially working as an illustrator before transitioning to photography. His big break came in 1929 when he joined the Deutscher Photodienst agency and adopted the professional name Felix Man.
