Michael Schmidt (1945-2014) occupies a unique position in contemporary German photography. Born in Berlin and with no formal training in photography, he discovered the medium as a form of artistic expression in the mid-190s. The retroperspective at the Hamburger Bahnhof—Museum für Gegenwart—Berlin portrays his life’s work chronologically for the first time and also represents the first exhibition of the photographer’s oeuvre in his hometown of Berlin in 25 years.
