Detlef Orlopp Show

Share:

In the early sixties, Orlopp developed a style that was completely his own. His black-and-white analogue photography predominantly shows landscapes, mountain formations, and the surfaces of water. Detlef Orlopp (b. 1937) is one of the most important German photographic formalists of his time.

Detlef Orlopp’s work unites a minimalist search for form with a personal interest in the morphological variety of landscape. Orlopp discovered his photographic language in his homeland, Siegerland, shortly after the Second World War, at a remove from the art scene. After a few years of travel and study, Orlopp became a student of Otto Steinert’s at the Schule für Kunst und Handwerk in Saarbrücken in 1956.
