🔻Wartende Frau ( the waiting woman ), 1951
Toni Schneiders (1920–2006) was one of the most important photographers in Germany after 1945. He was primarily known as a member of the group #Fotoform
, which he co-founded with Otto Steinert, Peter Keetman, Siegfried Lauterwasser, Wolfgang Reisewitz, and Ludwig Windstosser in 1949. Schneiders’s photographs are distinguished by their clear compositional form and their focus on essentials. He was very deliberate in his choice of lighting and with the eye of a sensitive painter, captured clear images and select characteristics.
