F.C. Gundlach, (prices: Vintage and Modern Prints: 3000 € - 10.000 €)

F.C. Gundlach (born July 16, 1926 in Heinebach, Hesse) dedicated his life to photography - as a photographer, gallery owner, collector and donor. Since September 2003 he has been the founding director of the House of Photography in the Deichtorhallen Hamburg.
Gundlach is best known for his artistic fashion photography, especially from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. These photographs also gave him an international reputation as a German fashion photographer: he became the busy star photographer of the West German fashion scene.

"... FC Gundlach proves to be a photographic artist with a will to style, a master of staging, who confidently disposes of the surface of the photographic image and organizes his objects in ever new formal constellations: as a photographer of exceptional aesthetic quality" (Klaus Honnef, Bonn 1986).

"Like few other German mode photographers Gundlach looked for already early the dialogue with currents of the forming art: Before all Surrealismus, OI and Pop kind he consulted, in order to create mode photographies, which show their historical context, which can stress nevertheless already long a rank for itself, which extends beyond their developing context. As artistic anticipation of a life feeling, as ikonische compressions of spirit of the time, they reveal themselves just as much over the dreams and longings of a past time as over humans as always a nature newly erfindenes via mode." (Holger Tiedemann)
