Photography   •   Hans Hildenbrand @ Wikipedia

The horror of war is usually sought in vain, yet the pictures of the Stuttgart photographer Hans Hildenbrand are something very special. Hildenbrand was one of the few photographers from the time of the German Empire who had official accreditation and was therefore allowed to shoot at the front during the First World War. And he was the only one who already made color photographs back then. Hildenbrand practiced his profession independently and lived by selling his war pictures as postcards. Instead of misery and death, he therefore held rather idyllic moments of this tragic period. His photographs of the theaters of war in Champagne and the Vosges from the years 1915 and 1916 show prudent, almost peaceful motives. Particularly well-known is the photograph of a small group of German soldiers who pull by horse and cart at sunset through a snowy Alsatian village.

Even before the First World War, the artist born in Stuttgart in 1870, who later became a Baden court photographer, had a penchant for unusual photographs. For example, in August 1908 he portrayed the Zeppelin LZ 4, hovering over Stuttgart, before he went up in flames a little later. Hildenbrand also photographed the tailcoat of the crashed airship and sold the photographs as postcards. The archive of the photographer, who died in his hometown Stuttgart in 1957, was destroyed during the Second World War, many of his originals were lost in the bombing. © Meisterdrucke
