Wall of Fame/august: Carl Strüwe

From 28.07.15
To 23.08.15

Carl Strüwe (1898-1986) was the first photographer who created an original artistic oeuvre based on microphotography.

Strüwe was trained as a graphic artist. His book "Formen des Mikrokosmos – Gestalt und Gestaltung einer Bilderwelt” (Prestel Verlag, München, 1955), with its 96 photographic prints, represents the core of his oeuvre in this field. With his later work from the mid-1950s, Strüwe belonged to the photographic avantgarde of Otto Steinert’s "subjective photography” in West Germany.
