February 11, 2009 – March 21, 2009
From February 11 until March 24, 2009, Flo Peters Gallery will be showing photographs by Horst P. Horst. Being one of the most important photographers of the 20th century, Horst P. Horst has significantly defined face and character of still life photography as well as portrait and fashion photography. Within six decades of transatlantic work for the publisher Condé Nast, namely for Vogue, the German-born, who in 1943 assumed US citizenship and divested himself of his birth name Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann, decisively influenced the development and the perception of photography. Even today he is considered a seminal antetype for young photographers.
