An insightful look at the artistry of GABO and the celebrities she captures on film
A visual treat for lovers of fine art photography and those interested in celebrity portraiture
GABO has succeeded like no other female photographer in using her camera to plough through the field of German celebrities in politics, culture and society and also to earn commissions from international stars as "the favourite German people photographer".
Big Shots is a collection of her best work over the last two decades, grand stagings, respectful portraits and sensitive shots of the human body.
This collection displays not only GABO's undeniable talent, but also her lust for life and constant quest for originality.
GABO was born in Hamburg. After completing her education, she worked as a model, studied graphic design, and directed music videos. Since her first photography assignment for Stern magazine in 1986, her photographs have been published in magazines such as GQ, Cosmopolitan, Playboy, and Max. She has won the Kodak prize and the Italian "Internazionale Venere d'Argento."
