Robert Lebeck

Robert Lebeck, born in 1929 in Berlin, studied ethnology before turning to photography. For three decades he traveled widely as a photojournalist for Stern, interrupted only by a short interlude as the 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. Also an avid photo collector, Lebeck died in 2014.
