About the German photographers, Anna (1936-2020) & Bernhard BLUME (1937-2011)
The artist couple Anna Blume and Bernhard Johannes Blume met as students at the State Art Academy in Düsseldorf, where both studied from 1960 to 1965. The couple is best known for their artistic photographs - especially in the 1990s Polaroids - which are often based on chronological sequences. With their photographs, mostly large-format series in black and white, the Blume couple do not depict reality, but use staged photography to try to graphically condense daily experiences from the petty-bourgeois milieu, often in an ironic way. The artist couple lived and worked together in Cologne.
