Michael Schmidt. Photographs 1965-2014

Exhibition - Photography

The first retrospective of the German photographer since his death in 2014 can be seen in the Sabatini building of the Reina Sofía National Art Museum.

Five decades of photographic production define Michael Schmidt as one of the great figures of German post-war photography. His pictures describe the society of his time, mainly in images of cities and the people in them. The show features around 350 portraits, landscapes, still-lifes and city scenes.

His work has always been characterised by his artistic vision. He would begin his photographic series by considering the medium in which they would be presented. Each series would be configured as an installation for the exhibition space, or as carefully designed books of photographs.
