Leica官方电子杂志中文版2007.01——《这才是摄影》2006年12月27日——安德烈亚斯·费宁格的百年华诞。为了纪念这位伟大的摄影师,Moritzburg基金会在Halle专为费宁格举行了一场摄影展,此次一共有140张费宁格黑白摄影作品亮相,摄影展将一直持续到2007年3月11日。

尽管费宁格以刻画纽约作品之犀利而闻名,这名摄影师的拍摄生涯却真正起步于德国Halle——在完成魏玛鲍豪斯建筑流派以及手工木艺研习后,费宁格在1931年的Halle得到了首次正式完成摄影作品的机会:帮助他的父亲里昂耐尔·费宁格拍摄绘画作品(里昂耐尔·费宁格是当时德国的著名画家,著名作品包括“Halle”系列等)。安德烈亚斯·费宁格也是在那时获得了自己的第一台Leica相机,第二选择则是当时的Rolleiflex。

在游历巴黎及斯德哥尔摩后,费宁格终于在1939年定居纽约。费宁格最初为自由摄影师,随后在1943年加入“Life”杂志,并在那里工作了近20年。在此期间,他一共发布了大约400余篇报道。

Feininger was renowned for his sharp and incisive shots of New York; his career, however, began in the east German city of Halle. After training in artistic carpentry and studying architecture at Weimarer Bauhaus, he received his first official photography assignment in Halle in 1931. The task was to photograph works by his father, Lyonel Feininger, who had painted the famous "Halle series" in the aforementioned Moritzburg. Around the same time (1931/32), Feininger got his first LEICA camera. It soon became his tool of choice, followed in second place by his Rolleiflex. After spending time in Paris and Stockholm, Feininger settled down in New York in 1939. He began by free-lancing, then joined the staff of "Life" magazine in 1943 where he worked for close to 20 years. During that period he produced around 400 reportages.


Leica官方电子杂志中文版2007.01——《这才是摄影》“他总能拿出完美的摄影作品,”摄影展负责人Thomas Buchsteiner博士说道,“在黑白胶片有限的表达模式中,费宁格总能巧妙地组合光影、透视、灰度、清晰、模糊等元素,长造出具有艺术性的摄影作品。”

费宁格自己从未幻想过成名,他只是尽力完成自己的图片和文字。因此,在他有生之年举办的摄影展次数少得可怜。

费宁格1999年2月18日辞世,享年93岁。

“这才是摄影,”此次世纪摄影展目录由Hatje Cantz Verlag出版发行,包含210张摄影作品,德文、英文讲解。在完成Halle展览后,费宁格摄影展还将在欧洲地区循环进行。

"He always delivered perfect photographs," says exhibition curator Dr. Thomas Buchsteiner. "Within the limited parametres of black&white photography - contrast, perspective, sharpness, blur and grey values - Feininger produced artistically condensed photographs." Buchsteiner - who actually met the artist - explains that Feininger himself had no interest in being famous. He believed his job was to produce textbooks and picture books. As a result, the number of significant exhibitions put on during his lifetime - such as the legendary "The Family Man" at the MoMA in 1955 - can be counted on two hands. Feininger died in New York on February 18, 1999, aged 93.

"That's Photography", the catalogue accompanying the centenary exhibition, is published by Hatje Cantz Verlag. It contains 210 photographs, along with German and English texts. After closing in Halle, the exhibition will tour through Europe. INAS FAYED
