Mein Gott Walter
He is one of our key mentors and top fashion photographers at Achtung Mode. But Walter Pfeiffer also draws and illustrates, so please come and join him at our friends’ do you read me?! for a book signing tomorrow evening at 7pm on Auguststrasse 28 in Mitte.
He has been working with us for more than a decade and is living proof that Udo Juergens was right: “Mit 66 Jahren, da fängt das Leben an.“ Pfeiffer is going from career high to career high at the moment. He is a senior citizen dream come true, active, busy and never looking back just like our other Gott Karl.
He is represented by the best photo agency in the world, Art + Commerce, where the master of management Philippe Brutus watches over his assignments – yes they turn down Vogue. He is having a show coming up at the prestigious Swiss Institute in the East Village in New York, has recently lensed the Ferragamo campaign and now brings out a new book called Bildrausch with his best drawings. In the past we have shot many great editorials together, mostly men’s as you can see in the slide show here. For the next issue in 2019, we are planning a Zurich story using faces Pfeiffer has recently discovered there. Go and meet him on the 18th at do you read me?!, he will probably tell you a joke.
