Barbara Klemm’s (*1939) photographs congenially model light and landscape. Heinrich Wefing wrote about these photographs that they are "studies of the elementary principles of all photography, of light and dark, depth and breadth, of the intensity of light and the density of shadows, all of them almost abstract compositions". Barbara Klemm is considered one of the most important contemporary German photographers. She has worked for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung since 1959 and became the newspaper’s editorial photographer for politics and culture in 1970. Barbara Klemm received numerous awards for her work. Barbara Klemm is so far the only woman to have received the Leica Hall of Fame Award (2012).
Since 1997 Robert Voit (*1969) has been travelling to Japan almost every year for several weeks with his camera. In its cultural juxtaposition of aesthetics, consumption and technology, the Munich photographer, who completed his studies at the Düsseldorf Art Academy as a master student of Thomas Ruff, finds the motives for his large-format photographs. In his latest visually stunning and detailed works, he is on the track of the magic of Fujiyama. After many years of documentation in the destroyed Fukushima, he sets a positive counterweight with this group of works.
