Exhibition Launch of “Bild einer Stadt” a Great Success

Wetzlar - Bild einer Stadt

The official lauch of the exhibition “Wetzlar – Bild einer Stadt” (“Wetzlar – A City’s Image”) took place on 30 May at 8pm. Original prints (vintage prints) by Hans Saebens are displayed in the exhibition in celebration of the Hessentag 2012. The exhibition is open from 1 to 10 June, entrance is free.

Far more than 100 visitors took the opportunity to get a first view of the black-and-white photographs. Both initiators of the exhibition, Lars Netopil and David Pitzer, shared fascinating insights into the photographic work of Hans Saebens. Among the invited guests were Wetzlar’s mayor Wolfram Dette, Dr. Knut Kühn-Leitz, grandson of Ernst Leitz II and Ottmar Michaely, world-renowned Leica-Doctor.
