Ernest Wilhelm “Wim” Wenders

“Wim” Wenders is a German filmmaker, author, playwrite and photographer. From the 1970’s to the 1980’s Wenders took over 12000 Polaroid photographs, including portraits of film stars that he worked with, landscapes and still lifes. Most of the pictures he gave away but what he kept he stored in cigar boxes that proved to be very good for storage and preservation.
