Arno Fischer and friends at an exhibition opening in Berlin, June 16, 2011.

Arno Fischer is one of the most celebrated German photographers of all time. And rightly so. He is the elderly gentleman in the picture. See his web site here.

  2. This is an excellent photograph. And thank you for posting the link to Fischer’s website – I was not familiar with his work. It’s inspirational. I particularly like the Polaroid triptychs.

  3. Many thanks both Ram and Graham.

    Sorry for the late response. I have been out of the country for almost a month and have not been regularly tending to my blogs.

    You are always supportive, and know that I appreciate this. It is not at all easy to get comments to blog posts, but you are always there. I am grateful.

    Have a good day and a good month as well :-).

  5. Maybe one of the last pictures taken of Arno Fischer – he passed away on 13th September 2011.
    Thanks for sharing, Knut.

  6. Many thanks for your comment, Thomas.

    This was shot, as you can see, in the middle of June 2011. I don’t think that this can be one of the last pictures taken of him, but I don’t know this for sure.

    I know that Arno Fischer passed away September 13th this year, and was very sorry to hear that.

    He has taken one of the best pictures I have ever, ever seen namely the one from Müritz in 1955, I think it was. Here: http://www.arnofischer.com/sites/arno_1.html

    In fact, I have a couple of more shots from June 16, 2011. I will have a look at them and if they are ok I will share them here.

    All the best
