No matter if it is a DIOR campaign with Sharon Stone, Natalie Portman or Sophie Marceau, PORSCHE campaign with Patrick Dempsey or stylish stagings for editorial pictures in luxury magazines like VOGUE, ELLE or FLAUNT … it is always Frederic Auerbach who is responsible for those iconic images.
Born and raised in Switzerland, he was first drawn to Paris before his work finally took him to Los Angeles.
At the Sander Gallery in Düsseldorf, his photographs were presented in an art context for the first time. Beside the opportunity to talk to him about his life and work I was also given the chance to gain a practical impression of his photographic approach as a model afterwards.
The interview is in German with English subtitles and includes a variety of his images and videos.
The film is structured into the following chapters:
- No fear of big names
- Editorial vs. Advertorial
- Creating sensibility
- Set challenges
- Actors don’t like cameras
- No parties, please
- The lucky-shot
- 1st gallery-exhibition
- His NFT-series
