Fotograf Josef Heinrich Darchinger ist gestorben

17 Aug

One of Germanys first Photojournalists died just short of his 88th birthday.

He was an agronom and perhaps out of passion decided to change course and became a photojournalist as he was not allowed to call himself photographer due to lack of education.

He was known för intimate knowledge of the politics in Bonn, then capital of Germany, but was always very careful to keep enough distance to the subjects he took pictures of in order not to get instrumentalized.
