Short biography
Günter Zint became a leading German photographer in the 1960s, when he photographed The Beatles at the famous Star-Club in Hamburg. As en engaged photojournalist he published in 1979 ‘Atomkraft” and in 1982 ‘Gegen den Atomstaat’. Another remarkable book is ‘Zintstoff, 50 Jahre Deutsche Geschichte, in which he shows to be a true chroniquer of the German society.

Together with journalist Günter Wallraf he published the worldwide bestseller ‘I, Ali’ (1983), in which Wallraf lives as an immigrant and shows the racism from companies that Turkish workers face everyday. Among other, Zint’s photographs are exposed in the ‘Haus der Geschichte’ in Bonn (2007), the Vonderau Museum (2007) and the Oldenburger Landesmuseum (2008). His work is in the permanent collection of the Sankt Pauli Museum in Hamburg, in the district where the Reeperbahn is located and which was Zint’s second home.

Zint worked for magazines like Twen and Quick, and for the newspaper “Spiegel”. The photographs sold at the gallery are vintage silver gelatin prints, printed in the 1969 on baryt paper. The cartoons were painted by Claude Bernard.
