Born in 1900, Gustav, or Gustave, Presser was an Austrian photographer who was very active in the 1920-30s salons, having shown in the Paris, Madrid, Chicago, Princeton, Vienna, London, Toronto, Barry (Wales), Irish (Dublin), Krakow, Bombay, Chinese and Japanese salons, as well as many others including at The Camera Pictorialists of Los Angeles show (several times), which was held at both the Los Angeles Museum and the De Young Memorial Museum (San Francisco). He lived in Vienna and was adapt at alternative processes, including bromoil, bromoil transfer and carbon prints.
