Regina Relang
The Elegant World of Regina Relang. Fashion and Reportage Photography

Regina Relang (Stuttgart 1906–1989 Munich).

1928–32: studied painting at the Kunstakademie Stuttgart and the Hochschule für Bildende Kunst Berlin; moved to Paris in 1932; travel and fashion reportage from locations in southern Europe for Vogue and Die Dame; photo features for Madame, Constanze, Film und Frau, Annabella, and Quick after World War II. Awarded numerous photography prizes; recipient of the German Order of Merit, 1972.

Masterly composed, poetic, and extraordinarily elegant photographs from the world of fashion were Regina Relang’s hallmark. With her photo features composed with verve and grandeur, the great postwar German photographer soon became the darling of Paris haute couture. During the fifties and sixties, she photographed the breathtaking new fashion collections of Christian Dior, Pierre Cardin, and Yves Saint Laurent, capturing as if in passing the evolving image of woman in the second half of the twentieth century.

Bearing an estate stamp, the limited-edition print from the original negative, photographed in 1958, we are now offering as a Collector’s Edition shows the enchanting and audacious model Gitta Schilling wearing an exquisite small hat designed by Guy Laroche.

Collector's Editions will be shipped upon receipt of payment (including postage and handling) or credit card authorization.
