PETER BASCH BIO
(1921-2004) was a German/American glamour photographer who captured
thousands of images of the most prominent stars of the 50s and 60s.
Peter Basch was born in Berlin, Germany, the only child of Felix Basch
and Grete Basch-Freund, both prominent theater and film personalities of
the German-speaking world.
In 1933 the family came to New York due to
fears of rising anti-Jewish sentiment and laws in Germany. The family had US citizenship because Felix's father, Arthur Basch,
was a wine trader who lived in San
Francisco. After moving back to Germany,
Arthur Basch kept his American citizenship,
and passed it to his children and,
thence, to his grandchildren.
When the Basch family arrived in New York in 1933,
they opened a restaurant on Central Park South in the Navarro Hotel. The
restaurant, Gretel's Viennese, became a hangout for the Austrian expatriate
community. Peter Basch had his first job there as a waiter. While in New York, Basch attended the De Witt Clinton High School.
The family moved to Los Angeles to assist in
Basch's father's career, during
which time Basch went to school in England. Upon returning to the United States, Basch joined the Army. He was mobilized in the US Army Air Forces' First Motion Picture Unit, where he worked as a script boy.
After the war, he
started attending UCLA and started taking photographs of young starlets working
with other photographers and film studios. His mother asked him to join her
back in New York
after she and his father decided that Basch should be a photographer
and they obtained a photography studio for their son.
For over twenty years, Peter
Basch had a successful career as a magazine photographer. He was known for his
images of celebrities, artists, dancers,
actors, starlets, and glamour-girls in America
and Europe. His photos appeared in many major
magazines such as Life, Look and Playboy.The
Peter Basch Collection includes iconic images of all the major midcentury stars, from Europe and America. These masterful images are
a window onto a time we cannot forget,
when movie stars stepped out of the studio’s control,
and we began to see these larger-than-life performers as full, three-dimensional personalities.
Basch authored and co-authored a number of books containing his photographs

Peter Basch, saw. He looked and he
saw. He taught me to see. He taught me to listen and hear. We used to play a
game when I was little. He’d say,
Michele, look at the street then
look at me, what did you see? I
would list the cars, red, black,
navy; people, fat, tall,
thin; children, parents; trees and
plants. He would add the detail. A blue car with New York
plates, a black car with New Jersey plates. The
people were not just tall or small,
thin or fat, they wore coats or
sweaters, they laughed or were sad.
The trees had leaves, were close
together, the green was dark, vivid,
the sun playing with the shadow.
My Father saw. He
captured in his mind and on film the unexpected moment in time, the interaction between two people, the look,
the thought, the breath that
punctuated the decision.
My Father was one of the great romantics. He had a true love
and appreciation of beauty in its purest form. We would talk about BEAUTY and
her differences: natural, Hollywood,
young, old and the beauty of communication, interaction,
the Beauty of the moment. He recorded the breath in time on film: two ladies in
Paris reading the paper,
a Dachshund looking around the corner,
a chair in front of the Eiffel
Tower. My Father saw the
thought and seized it for posterity.
My Father understood the language light speaks to shadow. He
showed me how the sun plays with dark. His favorite moment was at Sunrise when the shadows
were long and soft. He saw every hue from white to black and everything in
between. He understood the language,
taught and published books on Light and Shadow,
Form and Figure.
I traveled through Europe
with my Father. I was his assistant! And proud of it! I was the camera person! Changed
the film, made sure the lens was
clean, stood in during special poses, helped in the dark room,
retouched to refine and perfect. I loved watching him talk and listen. He
listened to Jane Fonda, Ursula
Andress, Brigit Bardot, Fellini,
Mastroiani and so many more. He listened and recorded the answer, the thought,
that moment of indecision,
realization and Seduction."
