- Kurzbeschreibung<p>This definitive monograph brings together Gundlach's fashion work for the first time and establishes him as a leading<br>light of the industry. One of the most distinguished German fashion photographers of the post-war era, Gundlach<br>placed fashion in the spotlight for 40 years, and wrote fashion history in the process. His work presents not only<br>the history of clothing, but also the poses, gestures, props and locations, which have defined the changing ideal of<br>beauty over the decades. Alongside this work, Gundlach also created empathetic portraits, reportages and travel<br>photography.<br>Gundlach always considered himself a photographer on assignment, and his photographs for high-circulation<br>magazines shaped the public's perception of fashion. Yet his black-and-white and color photography also captured<br>the spirit of its time, embodying the optimism of the meager days after the war, through op and pop art to the<br>emergence of postmodernism.<br>F.C. Gundlach, born 1926 in Germany, set the stage for the ever-changing vogues, defined postures and gestures<br>of models, chose props and locations and thus reflected the ideals of beauty and fashion against a changing social<br>background. Gundlach's life work covers fashion from 1950 to 1990, from Haute Couture to Prêt-à-Porter, and from<br>Berlin's tailoring to today's unisex fashion. Working for high-circulation magazines such as Film und Frau (1952-1966)<br>and Brigitte (1963-1986), F.C. Gundlach was formative in determining the perception of fashion, whilst reflecting<br>the spirit of the time - from the optimistic postwar years to the beginning of postmodernism. His life's work has<br>encompassed commercial service and artistic invention and is the oeuvre of a great photographer who was capable<br>of defying what Adorno referred to as the "clotted discrepancy between the sterile and the useful" of pictorial art.</p>
