From Wikipedia:
Max Georg Scheler (born on 28 December 1928 in Cologne; died on 7 February 2003 in Hamburg) was a German photographer and photojournalist. He was the son of the philosopher of the same name.
From 1953 to 1959 he lived in Rome and worked as a freelance photojournalist in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Asia for magazines such as Picture Post, Look, Life, Paris Match, Epoca and Münchner Illustrierte. In 1959 he moved to Hamburg, where he began his many years of work for Stern, whose appearance he coined with Thomas Höpker, Robert Lebeck and Stefan Moses. Scheler's main theme was people of different cultures. He photographed them in everyday life, during festivities, in times of crisis and war.
