On the occasion of the internationally renowned photographer Robert Lebeck receiving the Henri Nannen Prize Flo Peters Gallery is showing a selection of 120 photographs taken between 1952 and 2000. Robert Lebeck published his first pictures in 1952 in the “Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung”. He then spent thirty years working for the Stern as a photojournalist, significantly influencing the magazine’s visual handwriting. When asked to comment on his talent and success, Lebeck simply likes to call himself “outrageously lucky”. This phrase (“Unverschämtes Glück”) also served as the title for his first publication of color photographs taken between 1960-2000.
