Beuys Book. Klaus Staeck, Gerhard Steidl. Steidl.
Joseph Beuys was photographed extensively during his life, whether at work, while traveling or at home. But only a few photographers had the privileged access and tenacity of Klaus Staeck and Gerhard Steidl. Graphic artist Staeck and printer/publisher Steidl accompanied Beuys with their cameras from 1970 until his death in 1986. Staeck and Steidl were part of Beuys´ entourage, worked closely with him to produce his multiples and objects, and documented intimate aspects of the life of this unmatched artist-performer. These photos reveal Beuys´ unique charismatic personality that influenced not only those he met, but society and art in general.
