Hans Hildenbrand


One of the nice things about exploring the National Geographic Found Archives is it leads me down paths of discovering loads of new photographers.  Well, new to me, of course.  I could spend all day Googling the names that appear under each photograph to see what other treasures await.  One such discovery is Hans Hildenbrand.  He was a German photographer best known for his color photographs of World War I.  After the war, he was employed as a photographer by National Geographic.  As seen in this sampling of photographs, his work took him all over Europe, from Hungary to Austria and from Germany to Switzerland.  I love studying the details of the clothing in these photos.
