Fred Stein. A photographer from Dresden
In both places, Fred Stein forged his own photographical path with a particular feel for the right moment and the formal innovations of the Neues Sehen, or "New Vision" movement.Stein's interest in the social issues of the time is the reason why his oeuvre is shaped not only by images of people from the city but also by social reporting. The group of his works encompassing portraits of artists and famous contemporaries includes some which are among the photographic icons of the twentieth century.
From April 28, the Stadtmuseum Dresden will pay tribute to Fred Stein in a comprehensive retrospective.
