Horst H. Baumann, 1956

The photo from the DFA archive that Christoph Wieland talks about in the current podcast on the Horst H. Baumann archive: 22-year-old Baumann conferring with GDL chairman Wilhelm Schöppe on the sidelines of the GDL's conference dinner in Cologne in 1956.

The photographic work of the shooting star of German color photography will soon be shown in an exhibition at ZEPHYR / Mannheim. For Christoph Wieland, this photo is a relevant clue in understanding Baumann's career and a node in the "network of archives".
