In the spring of 2012, the Münchner Stadtmuseum’s Photography Collection acquired a sensational addition to its archives. The complete artistic estate of German-American photographer Hermann Landshoff (1905-1986), featuring 3,600 original prints from between 1927 to 1970, were generously donated to the museum.
Landshoff grew up in Munich-Solln as the son of a well-to-do Jewish family that was very much involved in the city’s art, literature and music scenes.
The catalogue will show a selection of Landshoff’s fascinating photographs for the first time, with subjects drawn from across the entire spectrum of his work, from fashion to portraits and architecture: early Albert Einstein portraits, New York fashion shots from the 1940s, artist’s portraits from the 50s and 60s, New York architecture, and travel photography.
