Robert Lebeck (1921-2014) belonged to the hand-picked team of photographers who have documented their time alone, but helped to shape our image of the past few decades and its most important protagonists. Quite a few of his more than forty years reporters life made portraits - about the grieving Jackie Kennedy or the Ayatollah Chomeini - have deeply burned into the collective memory. These include portraits of Elvis Presley, Maria Callas, and last but not least the life corner much admired Romy Schneider, with a particularly friendly relationship connected him. He has among other things worked for stern, GEO, life and Paris match.

Lebeck had the immense talent to watch the people in all its depth and subtlety with lovingly closer look. Lebeck art was to do the right thing at the right moment and to press the shutter at the right second.

Robert Lebeck was awarded on 11 May 2007 with the Henri Nannen Prize for his life's work.

A method for producing images by the action of light, which became widely known in 1839. Photography quickly became the basis for the expanding image industry that pushed the manually produced pictures, paintings and drawings into the background.

The avant-garde painting adopted photographic form elements, to ensure its painting validity. In the 1920s, many avant-garde painters turned to photography. With his photographs and photomontages, the American painter Man Ray developed new means of expression in modern art, the so-called "rayography".

The Pop Art of the 1960s varied and alienated the public photo with the help of technical means. The American pop artist Andy Warhol (1928 - 1987), with his images and image series created in this way, is the most well-known master of this art form.
