Her photographs are never snapshots; be it the fall of the Berlin Wall, the legendary meeting between Leonid Brezhnev and Willy Brandt in Bonn, the Socialist fraternal kiss Brezhnev and Honecker – in her characteristic black and white photographs, Barbara Klemm has documented the important and great moments of German-German history and politics for 50 years. She captured the instances when history was made. Which made the photojournalist one of the most important eyewitnesses of these historic events. In 2019, the year of her 80th birthday, her work ‘Zeiten Bilder’ was published.
