For the last 12 years, photo journalist Robert Lebeck has been passionately collecting and carefully storing that which most people throw away: magazines. From the illustrated broadsheets of 19th century Europe to the color productions of 1950s and 60s America, Lebeck has kept them all. Born in Berlin in 1929, he took pictures for various magazines before moving to Stern, the German illustrated periodical, where he worked for 30 years, a period interrupted but once when he did a stint as editor-in-chief of Geo magazine. Since 1985, Lebeck has been the director of the Agfa Foto-Historama, located at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne. He is also the author of Vis- -vis: Bodo von Dewitz.
