Gerhard Riebicke

Gerhard Riebicke (Germany, 1878 – 1957)

Sports photographer from Berlin known especially from the nudes from the film “Wege zu Kraft und Schönheit” (1925). In 1940 large parts of his archives were destroyed during a bombing. Vintage Riebicke prints have become very rare.

Riebicke was the most important sport, dance and nudism photographer in Germany between 1925 and 1935. His images were widely printed in Germany as well internationally in magazines, newspapers and books. His work was published also in several issues of the famous German photography yearbook "DAS DEUTSCHE LICHTBILD". His images were also included in the legendary avantgarde photography show "Film and Foto" in Stuttgart (1928), and Vienna (1930). The Riebicke photo archiv in Berlin was destroyed in large parts during the war.

In 2000, Riebicke had his first one man show at the Berlin gallery Bodo Niemann, which published the only monograph about him and his work. In 2002 the large exhibition "Nudes in the Photography of Gerhard Riebicke, 1924-1935", at the Moscow House of Photography, was a tremendous success.
