Twenty years ago, the gallery showed the first exhibition of Horst Schäfer’s New York photographs from the 1960s under the title “The Age of Innocence”, which was well received by the press. The current presentation, also in view of new uncertainties, takes us back to this exhibition, including works that have not yet been shown.
Horst Schäfer was born in 1932 and emigrated to New York in 1961. He became an early employee of the New York office of Agence France-Press (AFP), thus gaining access to the important press agencies and photo magazines. Works and series appear in Newsweek, Harper’s Bazaar, Life, Fortune, among others. First major contribution in US Camera in 1962, exhibition of “Architectural Views” in Rockefeller Center in 1964, followed by several photo reports in the New York Times. In 1968 he received the award for “Outstanding Press Photographer of the Year 1968”.
