Between 1950 and 1970, Romain Urhausen was among the most innovative photographers in Luxembourg. Influenced by the French humanist movement and German subjective photography, he participated in Edward Steichen’s Postwar European Photography exhibition at MoMA, New York, in 1953. His work was also shown at other pioneering exhibitions of the 1950s, such as Subjektive Fotografie 1 and 2, curated by Otto Steinert in Saarbrücken, at the Grand Palais, Paris, and the Folkwang Museum, Essen. He collaborated with poets on several books, including Les Halles with Jacques Prévert in 1963. In parallel to his career, he taught photography in Germany and France. He was also architect, designer, and graphic artist.
