About This Image

Photographer's Chiemgau stamp on verso. Max Baur (1898-1988) preferred to call himself a "Lichtbildner" (light picture maker) rather than "photographer." He always worked in large format and composed everything carefully. He was a master of the simple elegance, with a highly gifted feeling for the beauty of the simplest forms. He was one of the few European landscape photographers, and he also specialized in industrial and architectural photography. In the late 1920s early 1930s he made his living primarily from selling postcards of his photographs and running a small photographic enterprise in the Harz mountain town of Wernigerode. In 1934 he moved his family to Potsdam where he lived and worked until 1953, with a brief period in Bavaria from 1944 until the end of WWII. Clients included Kodak, Siemens, as well as important architects of the time. His photographs have been reproduced in numerous publications including "Max Baur: In the Bauhaus Spirit: Photographs 1925-1960", edited by Stephan Steins, Editions Stemmle, and have been exhibited and are in the collections of many galleries and museums throughout Europe and the United States.
