Joachim Baldauf

The award-winning star photographer Joachim Baldauf became internationally known in the 1990s when he became a style icon for a whole generation with his technically brilliant and artificial arrangements for WALLPAPER magazine. Since then his work has been featured in magazines such as ELLE, QVEST, GQ, SLEEK, VOGUE, TUSH and VANITY FAIR.

Baldauf is fascinated by the beauty of fashion and is dedicating a separate exhibition to PHOTOPIA this year entitled “Leaps in Time”. In the Street Side Gallery along Karolinenstrasse, he is showing 52 large-format tableaus on fashion from the Dorothea Mink collection. Photographed exclusively with his Leica S, these images convey how modern fashion from the past can appear when you look at it from a contemporary perspective. A 68-page catalog in the format 17 x 22 cm will also be published by Printkultur to accompany the exhibition.

You can experience Joachim Baldauf live on Saturday, October 15 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Then he will be a guest on the PHOTOPIA Stage as a key speaker and provide a look behind the scenes of his work.
