Photography

Strelow, Liselotte (1908 - 1981)

Liselotte Strelow chose to take portraits of important individuals from the world of business, politics and arts such as Joseph Beuys, Marlene Dietrich or Jean Cocteau and thus helped establish an influential documentation of postwar’s central protagonists. During her shoots, the German photographer liked to take numerous pictures, up to 100, of her sitters to make sure she would depict as many character traits as possible. Liselotte Strelow indeed had the conviction that portrait photography should capture not only the physical features of a subject but also its inner nature, thus creating intense and placid portraits from within.
