Born in Hamburg, Germany he first became known early in the 1970s as he captured politics in Germany. For some 40 years he has been shooting photos for Stern magazine and has in fact become known as the eyes of his country. Hinz's work at Stern provided entree to people and places throughout the world including shots of New York in the wee hours, Mexico and Hollywood. For his efforts he received the prestigious World Press Award, additional honors and countless accolades. He is, indeed, a photojournalist without peer.
As you browse this volume you'll find photographs of notables in all areas of life from the theatre to sports to politics. In many of the shots it seems that the subject had been caught in an unguarded moment yet I realize this is probably not true but the charm, warmth and honesty of the photo is totally due to Hinz's skill. His work is in great demand, garnering top dollar at auction yet is gathered here for our pleasure - enjoy!

While many of the images are of celebrities-- designers, sports figures, politicians, famous photographers--the shots of unknowns are just as interesting: for example, the photographs taken at the Area Club in New York or "A man with a pin-up calendar, Detroit, USA, 1982." Mr. Wichmann makes much in his introduction of Mr. Hinz's intuition and ability to get the right photograph at just the right time. The shot of Leonard Bernstein is a perfect example. The people in the background also have a story to tell and don't we want to know what they are about as well. Or the couple dancing behind Chet Baker on the next page.
My favorite photo in the whole book is that of "The chairwoman of the Christian Democratic Union, Angela Merkel, Berlin, 2006." Mr. Hinz uses a collage method-- if that is the proper name for it-- where he had taken two shots of Ms. Merkel and printed one slightly over the other, a technique that David Hockey devoted an entire book to, by the way. This is just a fine photograph that you cannot get away from.
Like all good books of photography, this is one that you will come back to again and again.
