Portraits, landscapes and interior views. ca. 1950-1961.

Collection includes examples of various subjects photographed by Strelow: portraits, including actors in stage productions, landscapes, street scenes and interior views. Her psychological approach to portraiture captures the subject in his or her own environment or type of occupation. She poses Henry Moore among sculpture; Jean Cocteau seated with the suspenseful look of an intellectual; Margarete Hauptmann (a hat model) wearing a hat; Gottfried Benn, the poet, with an intense close-up; Hans Pfitzner playing the piano. Several of these appear in Strelow's book "Das manipulierte Menschenbildnis oder Die Kunst, fotogen zu sein", Düsseldorf : Econ, 1961. Other identified portraits include Ewald Mataré, Carl Zuckmayer, Wiet Palar, Marianne Hoppe, Ernst Deutsch, Gerda Maurus, Elisabeth Flickenschildt and Werner Kraus.
