BIOGRAPHY

1916-2005

Peter Keetman’s photography examines abstraction and structure — often through the use of wire screens and water nodules.  That work established his reputation in Subjektive Fotografie and as a leading member of the postwar generation of German photographers.  Trained at the Munich Photographic School, he worked in Gertrud Hesse’s studio and studied with Adolf Lazi.  In 1949 Keetman helped found the group Fotoform, dedicated to photographic innovation.
