There are many talented photographers in the world, but not everyone can become classics. Swiss Hans Feurer is one of those who rightfully holds this title. He is one of the ten most famous photographers of the second half of the 20th century. Feuer dedicated his work to women and reached unprecedented heights. Back in the 60s, he was called a "classic of gloss" and the master's works regularly decorated the pages and covers of Vogue, Another, GQ, Elle, Numero, Stern.

Hans Feuer was born in 1939 in Switzerland. From a young age, he was fond of painting and graphics, which later helped his formation as a photographer. He started his career as an illustrator, then worked for several years as an art director in London advertising agencies. Photography was his hobby then, but over time it became his life's work.

It all started in 1964, when Feuer quit his job, bought a used Land Rover and left to travel around Africa. He took with him an easel, brushes and paints, as well as a camera. He traveled through the wildest places of the Black Continent, spent the night in a tent and absorbed the beauty of the surrounding world.

The traveler was particularly struck by South Africa, which became the final destination of his wanderings.

It was during this trip that he realized that from now on he would preserve the beauty of the world in pictures.
