Hermann Fischer was bornin 1885. All of his life, he took pictures of animals – arduously and very successful.

He was the shining example of an entire generation of wildlife photographers in Germany, after the war. His book, published as a new edition in 1953 "Tierjagd mit der Kamera " (Hunting animals with a camera) turned into the bible of wildlife photographers of an entire era.

In 1923, he started working on his own as a wildlife photographer. He may have been the first German, who actually did what many enthusiastic young photographers try to do: to work and live as a freelance photographer.

The areas he mainly worked at where the Lüneburger Heide, where he documented landscapes, people and animals. His work shaped an entire era, he died shortly before his 90th birthday in 1975, in Braunschweig.
