Hein Gorny
Hein Gorny (1904 - 1967) was a German photographer who worked in the spirit of the New Objectivity. He was a highly versatile photographer, who photographed a broad range of subject matter, including portraits, architecture and animals, as well as images used in industrial, commercial and illustrational contexts. In addition he created experimental photographs, primarily working with macro photography. Advertising photography was the field in which Hein Gorny carried out numerous commissions and was most well-known. He was primarily active in Hanover and Berlin. He was masterful in his groundbreaking ability to fuse the photographic spririt of his time with the demands of advertising photography. Self-taught, he had extensive, in-depth knowledge of photographic techniques and was specialised both in photographic and darkroom processes.
