Ludwig Windstosser - Köln
Vintage ferrotyped gelatin silver print on Agfa-Brovira paper. 29.4 x 23.2 cm. Titled in pencil and photographer's stamp on the verso.
Windstosser's vintage prints offered here are from the estate of Bert and Agnes Weißenburg-von Berg, Duisburg, who followed Germany's post-war economic rise as advertising professionals working for the Gemeinschaftsorganisation Ruhrkohle G.m.b.H, and in this capacity worked closely with the photographer. Guided by his great passion for art and culture, Bert Weißenburg-von Berg cultivated intensive contacts with contemporary architectural and artistic circles. In 1950 he met Ludwig Windstosser at the first "Photokina" in Cologne. The couple maintained a close, friendly exchange with the photographer between 1950 and 1971, advising him, for example, on the design of his photo book projects and illustrated books about Berlin and Stuttgart. In the latter, the two Berlin views offered here (lots 948 and 949) were published.
