Opening 23 August 2019 6 p.m.
Following the 93rd birthday of F.C. Gundlach, the exhibition GENERATION GUNDLACH. Works of the master of fashion photography F.C. Gundlach.
F.C. Gundlach captured more than four decades of fashionable and social change in his pictures, beginning with the return of elegance and glamour in post-war Germany to the liberation of liberal, emancipated fashion in the 1960s: With his cover pages and fashion sections in Film und Frau as well as later in Brigitte, he had a formative influence on fashion and the image of women. In addition to the looks, F.C. Gundlach's camera captured the faces of his time. Today his portraits of Romy Schneider, Hildegard Knef and Cary Grant resurrect the stars of that time.
But above all others, the motif of the journey stands as an apt metaphor for F.C. Gundlach's life and work: "On Location", for example in Giza, Beirut or Kenya, he realized his masterfully staged pictorial ideas.
