Rolf Kreuder


Rolf Kreuder (Würzburg, 1923- Fulda, 1995) was educated as a photographer at the Bauhaus in Weimar. During the Second World War, Kreuder worked as a photoreporter for the Germany army in the Eastern Front. When he returned from Soviet war imprisonment in August 1945, he went to study at the Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Lichtbildwesen in Munich. In 1949, he opened a portrait studio in Tann (Rhön). In the 1960s, he traveled extensively to the Middle East to photograph its landscapes, people and cultural heritage.

His photographic estate is kept at the Bischöfliche Generalvikariat in Fulda.
