About the artist
Born 1909 in Germany. Died 1999.
He learned the art of photography in Switzerland and later worked in Italy, France and Germany. His Second World War and post war photography’s made Kilian – who worked as a photo journalist at that time – gain recognition. Portrait pieces, landscapes and cultural documentations (especially Ballet photographs) followed at a later point. The artist’s pieces related to society and politics. Central to his approach remained the human itself and the depicted reality behind a photograph.
