Walter Schels: Life

Share:

A comprehensive selection of Walter Schels’ best-known projects will be on display at Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen exhibition centre from 19 July to 3 October 2019.

For more than 50 years, Walter Schels (born 1936) has dedicated himself to portraying people who are experiencing extreme life situations. Perhaps more than any other photographer of his generation, the exceptional artist has repeatedly ventured to the margins of human existence, creating series and long-term projects on topics spanning from birth to the dying process. His classic studio portraits, usually shot against a dark or neutral background, might depict any type of protagonist – from people with disabilities to well-known public figures. The artist separates his subjects from their individual circumstance, focusing purely on their physical and facial expressions. His approach has earned him a reputation as a reflective existentialist in the field of contemporary portrait photography.
