German Photographer Walde Huth

Born in Stuttgart in 1923, Walde Huth studied photography from 1940 to 1943 under Prof. Walter Hege at the School of Applied Art in Weimar. She worked until 1945 in the colour photography development department at Agfa/Wolfen, before she became a freelancer after the end of the Second World War with portrait, theatre and art photography. 
By 1953 Walde Huth was already running a studio in Stuttgart with eight employees. Her work for Esslinger Wolle gave her the experience for her enormous success with creations by Christian Dior, Jacques Fath, Givenchy or Maggy Rouff: the world famous “New Look”.
From the 50s to the 80s the photographic protocol of the west German product worlds emerged in a consistently unmistakable orchestration, perfected procedures and rational implementation. 
After Walde Huth closed the studio she had shared with her husband when he died in 1986, she focused once again intensively on realizing freelance themes.
Her images are featured in the collections of international museums around the world. Walde Huth, style-conscious, with a sharp eye and wit, inspired and inspiring, remains one of the great intellects of German photography. She died in 2011.
