Today’s gallery is dedicated to the individual most responsible for my career as a professional photographer, my father. He always encouraged me to take pictures, to experiment, to find my own way. For that reason he gave me my first camera, a Leica III with 50mm f/2 Summar lens on my 5th birthday. This used to be his personal camera and all of the photographs in today’s gallery were taken with that camera.
He attended the Hamburg School of Photography, where he took these photographs in 1949 at the harbor in Hamburg.
After graduating from the Hamburg School of Photography he worked as an apprentice with several different photographers and finally earned his degree of Fotografenmeiser (master photographer).
