Exhibition history: Museum for Arts and Crafts in Hamburg, 2003 Russian State Museum in St. Petersburg, 2005 Museum of Arts in Leipzig, 2008 Fritz Gunter Sachs (1932-2011) was a German photographer, film maker and art collector. Since 1972, Sachs was working professionally as a photographer, in 1973 he caused a stir with the first nude photograph for French Vogue. In 1991 he worked with Claudia Schiffer on the "Heroines" series. He gained international recognition in 1974 with a special show at the photokina trade show for which he also designed the official exhibition poster. In 1976 he was awarded the Leica Award. At the 'German photo days' and the photokina he received prizes for "Die Farbe Weiss" in 1994 and for "Die Farbe Rot" in 1995. The focus of his photography are surreal nudes and landscapes, which were published in no less than seven image volumes. Early on, Sachs also experimented with digital photography. The proceeds from the sale of his photographs and illustrated books went into the Mirja Sachs Foundation, which helps children in need. Sachs’ works have been featured in more than 40 international museum shows. In 2003 the Museum for Arts and Crafts in Hamburg paid tribute Sachs in a retrospective, in 2005 the Russian State Museum in St. Petersburg featured a show with more than 100 works of the artist of the last 30 years. In 2008 the Museum of Arts in Leipzig featured a comprehensive exhibition on the artists live and oeuvre entitled “Gunter Sachs – Die Kunst ist weiblich …” (Gunter Sachs – Art is female…). This retrospective became one of the most successful shows of the museum that has been founded 150 years ago. Further exhibition were held in museums such as the Tsarisyno-Museu in Moscow in 2009, the Frieder Burda Museum in Baden-Baden/Germany in 2009 and the Kunsthalle Schweinfurt in 2013 featuring Gunter Sachs works combined with works by international acclaimed artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Salvador Dali and Max Ernst.
