Koster, Heinz

Code 3005
ISBN: 9783570198995
Publisher: teNeues Publishing


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.
