Erwin Fieger - 13 Photo Essays


The German photographer Erwin Fieger works exclusively in color, which helps explain his taste for the brilliantly exotic. Fieger was born in Czech in 1928, emigrated to Germany at the age of 16 and studied graphic arts in the city of Stuttgart. He started his photography career as a professional sports photographer at the early 60's and covered several Olympic Games: Sapporo, Innsbruck and Munich. He also contributed to magazines such as Life, Realites, Queen and Town and Twen.

Fieger photos of travel and cities best represent his personal interpretation of color and crown him as one of the greatest contemporary photographers. 13 Photo-Essays is a large coffee-table retrospective art book from 1969 which includes a series of beautiful bold color photo essays. Amazing.
