Willy Maywald

Willy Maywald (1907-1985) was one of the most important photographers in  Paris from the 1930s to the 1950s. His education in the Technical Schools of Art in Krefeld, Cologne and Berlin shaped his avant-garde design idiom. In 1932 he was drawn to the City of Light, where he became friends with many champions of the Modern Art movement. Encompassing both commissioned art and self-initiated works, Maywald’s subject spectrum ranges from a spectacular collection of photographic portraits, to fashion photos for all the major Paris couture houses, to dance and architecture photography as well as travel and city reportage.
