A vision, a passion.
Günther Raupp studied painting and art history at the State Academy of Art in Stuttgart. It was here that he discovered a penchant for photography. The Stuttgart Staatsgalerie, a prestigious art museum, presented an exciting audiovisual solo exhibition about Venice by the then 25-year-old; it ran for eight months. He then garnered interest with unusual advertising spots, before his first automobile customers asked him for photographic productions. Today he shoots campaigns, brochures and magazines for Audi, Buick, Fiat, Ford, Jaguar, Lancia, Maserati, Opel, Porsche, Toyota, Volkswagen, Volvo and others. Günther Raupp ranks as one of the most sought-after automobile photographers in Europe and the USA.
After the recent exhibition premiere in the Ferrari Museum "Galleria Ferrari" in Maranello, there follow individual exhibitions in the Haus der Wirtschaft (House of Economy) in Stuttgart, Basel, Valencia and lastly in the Unesco Weltkulturerbe Stahlhütte (world heritage steel mill) in Völklingen, which attracts around 33,000 visitors.
Collectors can also buy the photographs as valuable originals, created using an elaborate diaplex process in 120 x 120 cm format, and personally signed by Günther Raupp.
