Harry Callahan. "...
« Vis-à-Vis »There is no photography. There is always only the photograph which gazes back at the viewer. Sometimes with a careful, tentative and questioning look; sometimes with a brisk or hasty glance. But it always offers something: an invitation to brief conversations. The viewer always looks, and the photograph, full of curiosity, gazes back. As in 1966, when the German reportage photographer Robert Lebeck took a portrait of the former German chancellor Konrad Adenauer at his 90 th birthday celebration in Bonn. The image, published in the magazine „Kristall”, shows nothing more than the left eye of the aged chancellor. The rest is covered by the portly body of a stranger. But this eye was already enough. The magazine photo engaged the reader in a dialogue. What really moved Adenauer on this winter day, what he saw or...
Goethe-Institut présente Hannes Kilian
Hannes Kilian (1909-1999) fait partie des artistes photographes les plus illustres de l’après-guerre. Le regard, qu’il porte sur les conflits du monde qui l’entoure, s’illustre en clair-obscur. Des contrastes nets, un gris parfois omniprésent et une lumière surréelle qui crée une atmosphère incomparable, en particulier la nuit.
Ses motifs captent des éléments en apparence secondaires. Pourtant, ils constituent une documentation unique sur les transformations sociales avant et après la Seconde Guerre mondiale en Europe.
Qu’il s’agisse de l’Exposition Universelle de Paris en 1937, de Stuttgart dévasté par la guerre, du miracle économique allemand ou de clichés exceptionnels de dans...
Hannes Kilian At Night
In his work as a photojournalist, travel and portrait photographer, as well as a photographer for the legendary Stuttgart Ballet, Hannes Kilian has uniquely combined documentary, the human element and artistic validity. With intuition and precision, the technical and aesthetic possibilities of the photographic medium fully utilized, he recognized the expressive motif in the everyday and seemingly random aspects of life. In doing so, Kilian’s view is indeed subjective.
Lighting, angle and image detail mirror his very personal awareness and perception, now and then featuring a turn to the unreal, such as in “Fresswelle” (1956), the panorama of the amply stocked buffet. Over the course of several decades, his pictures tell of German history, life among ruins of war, new beginnings and an economic m...

Hannes Kilian - 1909-1999Hannes Kilian
Concurrent with the first ever major retrospective of Hannes Kilian, presented by Berlin's Martin Gropius Bau, Johanna Breede and Gundel Kilian collaborate to present an exhibition of this photojournalist's seminal work. In honor of his 100th birthday, this exhibition brings together exceptional examples of Kilian's unique, personal, visual reflections, including some previously unpublished images. Kilian conferred his atypical flair for the phenomenon of movement to the heart of his still, photographic images. His subjective way of seeing and his talent to freeze a single moment of fate, in all her extensive complexity, made him one of the most successful photojournalists of the 20th century image.
Kilian began his photographic career solely producing personal work for himself. Later, as...
