Ernst Ludwig Kirchner: The Artist as Photographer

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner: The Artist as Photographer

By Thorsten Sadowsky

Like many of his contemporaries, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880–1938) was fascinated by the possibilities of photography and exploited them in various ways. In his work there is a noticeable interdependency of photography and visual arts that allows as to speak of an almost "photographic pictorial conception."

The catalog assembles a selection of about 140 photographic works and presents examples of all genres in which Kirchner worked: from nudes, studio scenes, and portraits to landscapes and object photographs. Although Kirchner did not consider himself a photographic artist, he did extensively exploit the possibilities of the medium of photography.
