RelativesZoltán Glass (brother)

Stephen Glass, along with his brother, Zoltán Glass, was one of a large group of talented Hungarians who fled westward before the Second World War.

He was born in Hungary to Jewish parents. After three years of intensive study in commercial art schools in Budapest, he earned his living as a designer, cartoonist, and painter. At the end of the First World War, he left Hungary for Germany,[1] where he worked as art editor for the leading evening newspaper in Berlin[2] until Hitler's rise to power. Like his brother, with whom he shared a studio, he fled to London and made a career as a photographer.[3]

In the 1940s and 1950s, he specialised in photographing nudes for such magazines as Health and Efficiency and The Naturist. In addition, his work regularly featured in continental magazines such as Paris Hollywood, Femina and Modelstudier making him one of the most prominent photographers of the nude at the time. The models, June Palmer and Pamela Green both posed for him, and he frequently used Spielplatz nudist camp in Bricket Wood as a location.

Glass would often use his flat as a studio. It was on Old Church Street, less than a ten-minute walk from his brother's studio on the King's Road, London.[4][5]

In addition to magazines, his work graced a series of books published by The Naturist, such as Pool of Enchantment (1950), Beauty and Naturism, and Sussex Maidens (1949).[6] Stephen Glass died 23 April 1990.[7]
