Lawrence Schiller (born 1936 in New York) is particularly known for his legendary photographs of Marilyn Monroe. Having worked for Paris Match and Life Magazine, Schiller published his first book, LSD, in 1966. This was followed by eleven further book publications, along with countless assignments for renowned international publications such as the London Sunday Times and Time magazine.
Titled Like Zelig, the exhibition offers an extensive overview of the photographer's work. Alongside Schiller's famous images of Marilyn Monroe, the selection also includes an emotionally charged fighting scene with Muhammad Ali, as well as a photograph taken just minutes after Lee Harvey Oswald was charged with the murder of John F. Kennedy.
As well as his photographic records of fleeting moments in world history, the exhibition also features Schiller's portraits of American actors such as Barbara Streisand, Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Tippi Hedren. Like Zelig opens at the Hiltawsky Gallery in Berlin on 26 April 2014.
