Traditions // BOYS TALK / Vater & Sohn / Ingo und Rainer Mittelstaedt / Moderated by Stephan Koal

About

The starting point for Ingo Mittelstaedt’s piece – specifically conceived for the exhibition traditions – was his father’s image archive. Rainer Mittelstaedt was one of the most successful press photographers of the GDR in the 1970s and 80s. After the German reunification he moved to the publishing house Springer Verlag and established himself as a police photographer. Ingo Mittelstaedt’s photographic work is shaped by his father’s and yet his images could not be more different. In this talk a father and son explore the similarities and differences of their photographic work.

Ingo Mittelstaedts speziell für traditions entwickelte Arbeit greift zurück auf das Bildarchiv seines Vaters: Rainer Mittelstaedt war in den 1970er und 80er Jahren einer der erfolgreichsten Pressefotografen der ehemaligen DDR. In den Wendejahren wechselte Mittelstaedt zum Springer Verlag und etablierte sich dort als Polizeifotograf. Ingo Mittelstaedts fotografische Arbeit ist geprägt von der seines Vaters, und dennoch könnte sein Werk nicht unterschiedlicher sein. Im Talk erörtern Vater und Sohn Gemeinsamkeiten und Differenzen ihrer fotografischen Arbeiten.
