Gestatten? Mender. Mark Mender! - Kaum ein anderer Modefotograf hat den Zeitgeist der "Generation Bond" so stimmungsvoll und sexy eingefangen wie er. Mender, geboren 1933 in München, ist Autodidakt auf dem Gebiet der Fotografie. Seine technische Experimentierfreude und sein Gefühl für besondere Settings lassen ihn schnell zur Modefotografie-Ikone aufsteigen. Mender, der sich nach einer schillernden Karriere als Fotograf zurückgezogen hatte um TV-ONE zu gründen, öffnet nun mit 79 Jahren sein reiches Archiv der Düsseldorfer Galerie VAN HORN. Wir freuen uns sehr ihm nun die lang ersehnte und längst überfällige Einzelausstellung zu widmen.

Die Ausstellung ist Teil des Duesseldorf Photo Weekends am 2 & 3 Februar.


His name is Mender. Mark Mender! -Nearly no other fashion photographer captured the spirit of the "Generation Bond" as atmospheric and sexy as he did. Mender, born 1933 in Munich is a self-taught photographer . His love of experimentation and his feeling for special settings let him soon rise to become an icon of fashion-photography. Mender, who withdrew himself after a colourful career as photographer to found TV-ONE, now opens - aged 79 - his bountiful archives to the Dusseldorf gallery VAN HORN . We're delighted to dedicate this long-awaited and long-overdue solo exhibition to him.

The exhibition is part of the Duesseldorf Photo Weekend on February 2 & 3.
