Sibylle Bergemann (1941-2010) was born and raised in Berlin and first worked as a secretary for Das Magazin. In the mid 1960s, Bergemann met photographer Arno Fischer, whom she married in 1985. Together they nurtured mutual interests in art and culture and gathered in their home/studio a community of visionaries: writers, directors, performers, painters, designers and photographers. In the early 1970s, Bergemann began to photograph for the East German women's magazine Sibylle. In 1990, she cofounded the Ostkreuz agency, which now represents a score of photographers.
This is the first English-language monograph on Bergemann's work from the 1970s and 80s. With contributions from outstanding international journalists (Regine Sylverster) and editors (Richard Buckley and Melissa Drier) to curators (Drew Sawyer) and art historians (Sarah Goodrum), the hardcover is a comprehensive collectible on the fascinating East German photographer.

Edited by Bernd Heise. Text by Jutta Voigt.
German photographer Sibylle Bergemann (1941-2010) made her living in fashion photography, but it was with her portraits of everyday life in East Germany over the 45 years of its existence that she gained acclaim. Nonetheless, she managed to make even her fashion photography subversive by East German terms, creating brilliant flares of color against uniform gray backdrops. “It's the fringes of the world that interest me,” she famously declared, “not its center. The non-interchangeable is my concern. When there is something in faces or landscapes that doesn't quite fit.” Well suited to such concerns, Polaroids have always occupied a place of affection within Bergemann's oeuvre; in these pictures, the artist captured more ephemeral moments and images than is typical of the rest of her oeuvre. Collected here for the first time, they record a vision without comparison in European photography.
