If you try to explain Michael von Hassel's photographic approach, it sounds paradoxical at first: by representing reality in an alienated way - for example, by lending it radically intense colour - he sharpens our own view of what is real. This hyper-realism works in amazing ways. When the Munich-born photographer captures an empty Oktoberfest tent, a mountain view, or a street scene from a big city in his innovative way, we discover details that might normally escape us. In so doing, von Hassel grants his audience a new perspective on the world and garners permanent place in international exhibitions. Furthermore, von Hassel was honoured as the best contemporary artist at the 2009 Hot Air Fair in Basel, Switzerland, and subsequently attracted an avid group of collectors. Apart from the photographer's distinctive approach, his images also possess a particular quality that explains their popularity: they are simply irresistibly beautiful.

As humans we are programmed to instinctively respond to beauty. It has an indescribable quality that lifts our spirits and opens our hearts. Yet while this intangible essence can be hard to define, it’s nonetheless instantly recognizable. Over the course of his illustrious career, photographer Kenneth Willardt has captured an impressive array of images that epitomize our contemporary concept of beauty. Although varied in their tone and subject matter, these finely structured compositions all possess a timeless elegance that draws us in. Equally at home in both black and white and color images, viewers of Willardt’s photography will be struck by the intimacy that characterizes his work. It will be no surprise, then, to learn that the subjects displayed here are celebrities that fascinate him or models he knows as friends. With this freedom and informality between photographer and models, the images are intensely direct and real.

Mercedes-Benz is a German manufacturer of automobiles, buses, coaches, and trucks. This title traces its origins to Karl Benz's creation of the first petrol-powered car, the Benz Patent Motorwagen, patented in January 1886 and Gottlieb Daimler and engineer Wilhelm Maybach's conversion of a stagecoach by the addition of a petrol engine later that year. Mercedes-Benz is one of the most well-known and established automotive brands in the world, and is also the world's oldest automotive brand still in existence today.

Edward Quinn’s debut as a professional photojournalist was at an equestrian show jumping competition in Nice, France. This initiation established two constants of the Irish photographer’s (1920–1997) work: the Côte d’Azur as a setting and animals as a subject. The French Riviera of the 1950s and 60s was a veritable El Dorado. Quinn’s wife, Gret, once said of this golden age, “In the fifties, looking around on the Riviera, you thought everyone was beautiful and happy.” Edward Quinn captured the shining stars of the day—everyone from Grace Kelly to Salvador Dalí—on film, preserving the magic of those boom years for future generations. Equipped with his Leica and an excellent eye, “Edward Quinn brought artistry to celebrity photos,” as People Magazine once wrote about him. Celebrities, both now and in the glamorous 1950s and 60s, tend to look shy, stilted, and intent on keeping their guard up when photographed. But not with Quinn. How did he get such impressively authentic portraits of his subjects? His discreet and gentle manner certainly helped, as did his trick of shooting stars with their pets. Celebrity Pets proves this tactic was a huge success. In the presence of their beloved pets, the stars are incredibly approachable and natural, whether it is Picasso romping with his dogs Kabul and Lump, or writer Somerset Maugham on all fours playing with his Pekingese Chin. We see Prince Rainer using a tiger as an icebreaker with Grace Kelly, and mixed-breed dog Guapa where every man dreamed of being: in bed with Brigitte Bardot.

How can a photographer of internationally known stars create iconic portraits that linger in the memory—especially since these actors have already been photographed and filmed millions of times? Vincent Peters—who has been working since 1995 for magazines such as Vogue and GQ and fashion brands including Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Yves Saint Laurent—relies entirely on the classic art of portrait photography for his pictures. Focusing on small gestures and subtle productions instead of prominent poses, he ensures that his subjects do not disappear into the backdrop and that their faces are the focal point. Emma Watson’s features are lent a tragic note with white makeup. Photographs of stars such as David Beckham and Christian Bale are markedly masculine. Even more intimate are the images that Peters has taken in private surroundings, like when he accompanied Monica Bellucci during the years. His sophisticated lighting has the most impact in his black-and-white photos, bestowing them with a breathtaking cinematic quality.
