A comprehensive rediscovery of an overlooked genius. Relive the vitality and style of 50's glamour Heinz Koester's celebrity photography brought much-needed hope and distraction to the austerity of post-war Germany. His skilful lighting and unique camera angles are still striking to the modern eye. Although very advanced in photographic techniques, Koester treated his subjects with old-world courtesy. 'Warts and all' documentary style was not for him. A master of the careful touch-up and flattering composition, these works showcase public figures in a way that's both intimate and inspiring. Working by day and by night, Koester?s output was monumental. Mighty statesmen, theatrical impresarios, screen legends; his lens captured them all! This collection presents the artistic highlights of a most prolific career. ISBN: 978-3-570-19899-5 Hardcover 96 pp, 10 5/8 x 14 1/6 in 61 b/w photographs Text in English and German
