Gerhard Richter by Lothar Wolleh (1969)

The photograph titled “Gerhard Richter” was taken by the artist Lothar Wolleh in Düsseldorf in 1969.

In the photograph, a man is standing in front of a white door that is set in a slightly textured wall. The man is positioned at the center of the frame, facing the camera directly with his arms crossed in front of him. He wears a long-sleeved shirt and what appear to be paint-splattered overalls, suggesting he might be an artist. His expression is serious and contemplative. The contrast between his clothing and the monochromatic backdrop accentuates his figure. Overall, the image has a strong sense of symmetry and an almost clinical sharpness, with the subject squarely framed within the architectural elements.
