Hubbuch 276x

Karl Hubbuch's creative career only lasted from 1925 to 1935. During this period the autodidact from Karlsruhe extensively experimented with self-portraits. After that Hubbuch suddenly stopped taking pictures for unknown reasons. His productive decade, however, has left behind an exceptional series of photographs that often composes images of people and pieces of art next to one another. The picture on the left also shows Karl Hubbuch's wife, Hilde, who became a renowned New York photographer after their 1936 divorce. For more information, visit
