Special Photografic Auction of Hans Truoel“s Photographic Archive. Auction date: 18th and 19th January 2013, starting at 1pm (CET).
The entire photoarchive of Hans Truoel is on sale, with copyrights.

Hans Truoel was the most celebrated press and celebrity photographer of his time. He worked from 1932 to 1981. His work was awarded with numerous prizes and acknowledgements around the world, for example in the U.S., China, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

A big part of the archive has been digitized during the past 12 years, for most of the photos negatives and handmade prints signed at the back by the artist, exist. The photographic archive contains approximately 42,000 digitized and about 8,000 undigitized photos and negatives.

Hans Truoel was born on 26th June 1920 in Augsburg. As a a son of a merchant businessman Hans decided to persue a completely different career. He became more and more excited about photography and thus his passion became his profession.
During his working period as a photojournalist, he very much specialized in capturing winter sports, setting new standards which made him one of the outstanding press and star photographers of his time.

At the beginning of the 50ies Hans Truoel started to use a „Hasselblad“ camera. This camera produced photograhs of extraordinary sharpness, resolution, and contrast.

Among the most famous resorts captured in Hans Truoel“s photos are for example, Zürs, Lech, Kitzbühel, Chamonix, Davos, Bad Gastein, Zermatt, Cortina, Aspen and even the mountains of the Himalaya with their most beautiful and spectacular sites. But not only the sites featuring in his photographs were impressive, but also the people he portrayed.

Celebrities not belonging to the ski world, such as, Ferry Porsche, Aga Khan IV, Queens Juliana and Beatrix of the Netherlands, King Baudouin from Belgium, King Hussein, Farah Diba, Ingrid Bergman, Petra Schürmann, Marina Epple, Huschke von Hanstein and Carlo Abarth stood before his photographic lense. With many of his clients he also had an amid and friendly realtionship.

Another of his passions was the „Porsche“. One of the most well known and unique photos within this commission was most certainly the „Porsche Jump“, which gained international fame.

Hans Truöl passed away on 26th April 1981 in Immenstadt, leaving an impressive legacy, a unique documentation of the period from 1932-1981, probably the most exciting time in skiing when simple wooden boards became skis and glaciers became their arenas.

His work is one of the most comprehensive, emotional and important historic legacies of irreplaceable photographs.
