  • 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.
