Robert Lebeck

Born in Berlin, Robert Lebeck (1929–2014) studied ethnology before turning to photography. For three decades he traveled widely as a photojournalist for Stern, interrupted only by a short interlude as editor-in-chief for photography at GEO. He received the Dr. Erich Salomon Award from the German Photographic Society in 1991 and the first Henri Nannen Award in 2007 for his life’s work. Lebeck’s books with Steidl include Tokyo, Moscow, Leopoldville (2007) and Face the Camera (2016).
