Andreas Feininger

Andreas Feininger: Photographer
by Andreas Feininger
Publisher's Description
This is the first book on the career of former Life magazine photographer Andreas Feininger. Known for his photo-essays and instructional books, Feininger has returned time and time again to the themes that have fascinated him: modern cities, nature and natural forms, and the female nude. In the accompanying autobiographical text, Feininger reveals his early upbringing, his studies at the Bauhaus where his father Lyonel Feininger--the painter--was a teacher, and his years spent working for Life magazine. The text includes photographs of Feininger's various darkrooms, studios, and some of the technical equipment that he invented. The plates are beautifully printed in duotone.
