Strelow, Liselotte

Liselotte Strelow (1908-1981) was a German photographer. She began her career at Lette-Verein in Berlin in the 1930s, later opening her own studio at Kurfürstendamm. Her oeuvre is inextricably linked to the period of the country’s reconstruction and the German Wirtschaftswunder (economic miracle) from the 50s onward. By portraying personalities of the political, economic and cultural spheres of that time (from Konrad Adenauer, Theodor Heuss to Joseph Beuys, Marlene Dietrich and Salvador Dalí), Strelow and her photographs played a decisive role in shaping the image of the still young Federal Republic of Germany.
