Kurt Hielscher (1881 –1948), German

Kurt Hielscher was one of the most famous German art photographers of his time. He was born in Striegau, Schlesien (Silesia, Poland) and died in Lichtenstein in Sachsen. He was a German language teacher in Spain during the first world war, where he made thousands of artistic photographs of Spanish landscapes. In the 1920s he started to travel around Europe and publish photographic books of his journeys: Germany (1924), Rome (1925), Italy (1925), Austria (1928), Yugoslavia (1926), Scandinavia (1932) and Romania (1933).

 

Kurt Hielscher visited Macedonia as a part of his Yugoslav journey in 1926, where he made marvelous photographs of Prilep, Ohrid, Skopje, Novo Selo, Kratovo, Stip, Veles, Kumanovo, Bardovci, Matka and Thessaloniki.  These photographs are published in his book from 1926 called “Yugoslavia, landscape, architecture and life of people”.

About Me

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
