The basic principles underlying the photographic art of Andreas Feininger, born in 1906 in Paris, the eldest son of painter Lyonel Feininger, are clarity, simplicity, and organization. Upon completion of training as a cabinet-maker at the Bauhaus in Weimar in the early twenties, he went on to study architecture at the Bauhaus in the state schools of architecture in Weimar and Zerbst. After working as an architectural photographer in Stockholm, he emigrated to New York following the outbreak of World War II. Feininger was hired as a photo-editor by Life magazine. In his own work, he captured images of urban canyons, skyscrapers, bridges, and elevated railways in concentrated, atmospheric photographs that are regarded as classical works today. He applied the same enthusiasm to nature studies. His detail images of insects, flowers, shells, wood, and stones imbue these forms with a sculptural character. The book presents the work of this prominent photographer, who died in 1999. Exhibition schedule: Galerie der Stadt Stuttgart May 7 - August 1, 2004
