Display artist/maker:

Erich Retzlaff

Born: 1899, Germany, Schleswig-Holstein, Reinfeld   Died: 1993, Germany, Bavaria, Dießen am Ammersee

Photographer. Acclaimed for his black and white portraits of the German labouring classes, Retzlaff was also one of the first German photographers to use Agfacolour-Neu, shunning the more complex Kodachrome system from America. When the National Socialist Party rose to power in 1933, they had been so impressed by Retzlaff's portrayals of the German 'Volkdom' that they employed him to produce portraits of prominent party members such as Rudolf Hess and Joseph Goebbels
