About this Item

Folio. Unpaginated. [56]pp, [56]pp. Original wrappers illustrated by Otto Arpke. Set of two complete catalogs from the Atelier Binder. From the late 1920's through the 1930s, Atelier Binder was the largest photo studio in Europe, whose founder, Alexander Binder*, was one of the leading portrait photographers in Berlin. One of the catalogs is dated (III. Heft 1928 / November), but not the other one, which, however, seems to be from the same period. Each catalog features four full page sepia-toned portraits on heavy paper stock of Princess Vera Margani, Wladimir Sokoloff, a countryside scene titled "Regenstimmung" (Rainy mood), a nude baby, Linnyclär Baronesse Gontard, two young children holding each other, Valery Boothby, and Tony van Eyck. Next to various full-page b/w advertisements the catalog contains numerous photogravure portraits of Leni Riefenstahl, Alexa von Porembski, Walter Hasenclever, Alfred Hüttenbach, dancer La Jana, Oscar M. Hahn, Sybille Binder, Ernst Oppler, Stefan Lorant, Claus and Erika Mann, Gerda Maurus, Gustav Hartung, Alexander Moissi, Betty Bird, Prince Birinda Singh of Patiala, Lili d'Alvarez, Elisabeth Pinajeff, Benno von Arent with his wife, Vera Engels, and others. Text contributions by Frank Arnau, Stefan Lorant, Anita, Polly Tieck, Hans Hyan, and Annie Jacker. Moderate foxing/age-toning on wrappers. Closed tear at head of spine of one of the volumes. Fore-edge of pages slightly rippled due to damp exposure. Light water staining along lower fore-edge and lower margin of pages (not affecting text or illustrations). Text in German. Wrappers in overall good- to good, interior in good+ condition. * Alexander Binder (1888-1929) was born in Alexandria. He was Jewish and probably of Swiss origin. He studied engineering, but interrupted his studies prematurely. From 1908 to 1910 he attended the Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt für Photographie, Chemie, Lichtdruck und Gravüre (Teaching and Research Institute of Photography, chemicals, light pressure and engraving) in Munich and then went to Berlin. There he opened in 1913 his first photo studio, Atelier für bildmäßige Porträt Photographie in a room in the Motzstraße. Two years later he moved his studio to Kurfürstendamm 225, in a posh shopping and entertainment area in the centre of Berlin. He soon became one of the leading photographers of Berlin. Binder created advertising and portrait photography. His focus was primarily on celebrity and fashion photography. Binder's photos were exhibited in 1921 at the first Annual Exhibition of Photography at the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts) in Berlin. In 1925-1926 he had an exhibition in London. Berlin was at the time the Mecca of the European film industry. Binder photographed all the stars of the German silent cinema, including Conrad Veidt, Lilian Harvey, Leni Riefenstahl, the Italian Carmen Boni, the Dutch Truus van Aalten and the Hungarian Lya de Putti. During the filming of Die Freudlose Gasse/The Joyless Street (1925, G.W. Pabst), he also portrayed the young Greta Garbo. His photographs appeared in the monthly photo and film magazine Die Linse, and in many other magazines. Bookseller Inventory # 39053
