About

Glenn Morris by Leni Riefenstahl Silver Gelatin Print Unframed Image size: 11 in. H x 8.625 in. W Sheet size: 19.625 in. H x 14.75 in. W Signed lower right in pencil, Title lower left in pencil Leni Riefenstahl was a German actress and director known for her propaganda films Triumph of the Will (1935) and Olympia (1938). The controversial nature of her relationship with Adolf Hitler cast a long shadow over the career. Despite this, Riefenstahl’s work remains a premier example of pioneering cinematography techniques, including tracking shots and slow motion. “Where is my guilt? I can regret. I can regret that I made the party film, Triumph of the Will, in 1934. But I cannot regret that I lived in that time,” she once explained. “No anti-Semitic word has ever crossed my lips. I was never anti-Semitic. I did not join the party.” Born Helene Bertha Amalie Riefenstahl on August 22, 1902, in Berlin, Germany, she pursued dancing as a child, going on to perform an interpretive dance around Germany as a young woman. A foot injury led Riefenstahl to end her dancing career and she began acting in the mid-1920s. She famously starred in the successful G.W. Pabst film The White Hell of Piz Palü (1929). Transitioning from acting to directing, she was introduced to the Führer during the early 1930s. Smitten with the young filmmaker, Hitler offered her the rare opportunity to direct films for the Nazi party. After World War II, Riefenstahl was the subject of four denazification proceedings, which found her to be an active Nazi sympathizer, though innocent of any war crimes. During the latter half of her career, the artist spent much of her time in Africa, documenting the indigenous Nuba tribe in Sudan in a series of striking color photographs. She died at the age of 101 on September 8, 2002, in Pöckling, Germany.
