Anno Wilms – Identity and Contrast

The main interest of the Berlin photographer Anno Wilms (1935-2016) was the human being in his individual self-imposed as well as externally-determined living conditions. The topic of social minorities takes an early and central position in her work. In the '60s and' 70s, the ever-restless traveler photographed Roma families across Europe, was seeking Bedouin camps in Israel and Egypt, and later lived with the Rastafarians in Jamaica for weeks. Another fascinating focus in her large and well published oeuvre is the performing arts and above all the dazzling world of the Berlin transvestite scene as it was acted out in the famous cabaret theaters Chez Romy Haag and Lützower Lampe.
