Charlotte March was one of the leading international fashion photographers from the 1960s to the 1980s. The major retrospective at Deichtorhallen Hamburg lays the foundation for the rediscovery of the iconic photographer’s oeuvre and offers a comprehensive overview of all of her creative periods for the first time. From her hitherto little-known early work, relating to the “Humanist Photography” movement, that reveals her sensitive eye for the margins of society in post-war Hamburg, took her to wholly unglamorous places, to her journeys to Italy in the 1960s, as well as her highly influential fashion and advertising photography. The narrative of her imagery for magazines such as twen, Stern, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Elle, and Vogue reveals an emancipatory attitude and evoke the notion of a new lifestyle and the social upheaval of the 1960s. The exhibition and catalog illuminate March’s multifaceted work and attest to her status as one of the most important female photographers of the second half of the 20th century.
