Robert Lebeck – 1968

The year of the student protests took place without me,” Lebeck recalls of 1968 in his autobiography. The Exhibition “Robert Lebeck. 1968” presents the diverse photo series Robert Lebeck made in 1968, which form an alternative view of the year when social conflict and personal rebellion against authoritarian traditions found their passionate and often violent expression. Upheaval, protest, perseverance and failure—themes that are not always explored in retrospective mythicizing views of 1968—are clearly expressed in Lebeck’s photos, taken in locations from New York to Bogotá and Wolfsburg.

Robert Lebeck – Face the Camera

Robert Lebecks wife and closest creative companion Cordula Lebeck has collected a stunning array of mostly unpublished photographs with the title "Face the Camera". Her dedicated search and meticulous archiving process allows us to discover his "Global Wanderlust"; endless sense of wonder and ferocious curiosity towards every day life.
All Photos where taken during the late Fivties and Seventies, a time of great change. With his tremendous charisma, mischievous and likable nature Robert Lebeck was able to instantly connect with his subjects on a very natural level. His curiosity and bright personality made no difference between rich or poor, in front of his camera all where equal: Elvis Presley, the men who lives on the street or Woody Allen.

Robert Lebeck. Fotografien 1955–2005

The Martin-Gropius-Bau is devoting a major exhibition to the work of the German photo reporter Robert Lebeck, who photographed for Revue, Kristall and Stern and was editor-in-chief of GEO magazine.

This will be the most extensive presentation of pictures by Robert Lebeck to date. Also on view will be printed features giving a broad overview of the world of post-war periodicals. On the occasion of his 80th birthday (on 21 March 2009) 300 photographs – some familiar and some hitherto unknown – will recall the active years (1955-2005) of the former Stern reporter, who in 2007 was the first photographer to receive the Henri-Nannen Prize for his life's work.
