Miscellaneous Information:

«Jürgen Winkler, born in Berlin in 1940, professional photographer and mountain guide, has published outstanding collections of black and white pictures in the field of classic mountain photography.

Through careful composition of light and shade, which forces him to condense and translate Nature’s colours into clear visual structures, Jürgen Winkler succeeds brilliantly in expressing the mysterious and sometimes hostile elements, the solitude and the potential risks to which the mountaineer exposes himself. His techniques and objectives are presented in lucid and beautiful language.»
