PortraitFrank Darchinger was born in Bonn in 1949. In 1977, after having finished his studies in English and German literature, he began his career as a photojournalist, while also assisting his father, Josef Heinrich Darchinger, with the classifying and updating of his legendarily vast and efficient photographic archive. It was through his endeavours to make his father's work accessible to the general public that the organizing of photographic exhibitions and the designing of photographic books and catalogues became one of his main activities. Today Frank Darchinger works as a freelance photographer in Bonn. Josef Heinrich Darchinger started working as a freelance photojournalist in 1952. Darchinger's photographs began to regularly appear in reputable German print media starting in the mid-1960s. In his years as a photographer for Spiegel and Die Zeit, Darchinger had a formative influence on the magazines' national news coverage of Bonn. He also presented his work at exhibitions and in collections of photographic portraits - for instance of Helmut Schmidt, Willy Brandt, Richard von Weizsacker, or of Heinrich Boll. Darchinger received numerous awards, among which was the prestigious Dr. Erich Salomon Award from the German Photographic Association. Klaus Honnef is professor of photography theory at the Kassel Art Academy. He was one of the organizers of documenta 5 and documenta 6 in Kassel, and has been the curator of more than 500 exhibitions in Germany and abroad. He has written numerous books, including TASCHEN's Contemporary Art (1988), Andy Warhol (1989), and Pop Art (2004).
