Born in Paris and raised in Germany where he trains as an architect at the Bauhaus, the son of the painter Lionel Feininger settles in New York in 1939. Andres Feininger thus becomes the city’s most prominent visual biographer as he captures its iconic bridges and skyscrapers, its traffic jams and crowded spaces as well as its contrasting horizontal and vertical lines. Just as he had depicted the Niagara Falls and the roads of the American West, the photographer bestows New York with the identity of a vast, vibrant natural landscape. Andres Feininger manages to add emotion to his formal and perfect technique surely because he believes that, ‘to see like the camera, a photographer must silence all his senses.’ Thanks to numerous publications and pedagogic books, he becomes one of the world’s most renown photographer - Peter Lindbergh once admitted that his passion for photography had begun with Andreas Feininger’s Creative Photographer manual. The photographer also specializes in the depiction of bones and fossils - relics illustrated with the same intensity and monumentality as his architectural views. A passion for the skeleton under the steel and under the flesh.
