The Collection Regard of Berlin, Germany, shows with “Hein Gorny: New Objectivity and Industry“ German Industrial Photography from the 1930s. On view through 27 May 2016.
In the 1930s, Hein Gorny was a much sought-after industrial and commercial photographer in Germany. Many of his industrial commissioners attached high value to modernity, aesthetics and design, not only in terms of their architecture, production structures and products, but also in terms of their visual representation.
The exhibition “Hein Gorny: New Objectivity and Industry“, which was curated by Antonio Panetta and François Hébel, the Collection Regard in collaboration with Foto/Industria presents a broad range of his works and puts photographic approaches of German industrial photography together.
In his timeless image design Gorny brought together the objectivity and drive for progress, with which firms confronted the demands of the era. He integrated the formal vocabulary and experimental spirit of New Photography into everyday practice and thus became a master of this applied style.
