Lothar Schirmer is a legend in the publishing industry, one of the few today to carry on the tradition of Robert Hoffman, Paul Gottlieb, Robert Delpire and Georges Hercher. The list of books he has published is intertwined with the history of photography. We here at La Lettre wanted to pay him tribute. Known as a private man, he sat down with Eva Gravayat for an interview, even going so far as to share with us his personal albums. Thank you, Lothar.
