  • William Rittase (1894 - 1968) was an American photographer known primarily for his industrial photographs of the 1930s that appeared in Fortune magazine. His preferred subject matter included manufacturing sites as well as exploring the American middle class at work and play.

    Notably, Rittase contributed his photographs to the 1932 MoMA exhibition, Murals by American Painters and Photographers.

  • One of Fortune magazine's most frequently published photographers, Rittase was an engineer before embarking on a career in professional photography. This specialized knowledge served him well in photographing the industrial subjects characteristic of the magazine in the 1930s.
