Rudolf Koppitz

Happy Birthday, Rudolf Koppitz!

Rudolf Koppitz (1884–1936) is amongst the most important Austrian photographers. He is much appreciated internationally for his unique way of blending Pictorialism and Art Deco.

Self-portrait, In the Bosom of Nature. 1923

Koppitz's nude self-portraits fascinated his contemporaries as much as they do viewers today. The photographs were taken high in the mountains of the Alps --with the assistance of his wife, Anna. Often symbolic, his images reflected the enthusiasm for nature that Koppitz nurtured throughout his life. - Wikipedia
