Hermann Landshoff

Share:

Without a doubt, Hermann Landshoff (1905-1986) is one of the last great unknowns of 20th century photography. His very diverse works reflect the many aspects of an era, as well as providing a record of the European artists living in exile in the USA at that time.

The exhibition presents Landshoff's portraits of European artists who found a new artistic home in New York, within the sphere of gallery-owner Peggy Guggenheim. It also shows a unique cycle of around 70 portraits of photographers from the period between 1942 and 1960.

Further picture series are dedicated to the architecture of New York City and its inhabitants, with a particular focus on those who have been marginalized by society. In addition, countless portraits exist of prominent physicists like Albert Einstein and members of the Los Alamos project, who were involved in the construction of the first atom bombs.

The exhibition presents a selection of over 250 images covering the themes of fashion, portrait and architecture, that constitute one part of Landshoff's exciting body of work.
