The Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen has acquired a large part of the estate of Andreas Feininger (1906–1999): the Andreas Feininger Archive, comprising 565 prints authorised by the artist (261 of which are hand-signed), several of his cameras, as well as Kodak Super-XX films, film boxes and cartridges with which the photographer worked at the time. The archive also includes original editions of LIFE Magazine, along with catalogues, books and photography manuals published by the artist.
Many of the exhibited photographs have become well-known classics. In addition to Feininger's world-famous city views of New York, visitors will have the opportunity to explore his experimental studies and fascinating nature and landscape photographs. These works serve to highlight the fact that the photographer's acclaim was not least due to his outstanding technique. A telephoto lens he developed himself, for example, enabled him to take astoundingly detailed shots from a great distance.
