The contribution of the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt to the Frankfurt festival programme “Democracy in the Making” on the occasion of the 175th Paulskirchen anniversary is the retrospective ABE FRAJNDLICH. CHAMELEON. The US-American photographer Abe Frajndlich was born in a displaced persons camp in Frankfurt in 1946 and worked for major international media, including FAZ magazine, from the 1980s onwards. In his pictures, he repeatedly deals with creativity, hope and identity in a free world.
The photographer’s work is strongly influenced by his own biographical experience: Abe Frajndlich's childhood and early youth were marked by migration. His path – and that of his family – led from Germany to Israel, back to Germany, and then via France and Brazil finally to the USA.
Abe Frajndlich began taking photographs in 1970. The FFF retrospective presents photographs from all of the photographer's creative years. Among others, Frajndlich's experimental works, his street photography in various countries as well as his portraits of great artists such as Cindy Sherman, Leonard Cohen, Louise Bourgeois, Nancy Spero and Jack Lemmon can be seen.
