Born in The Hague in 1924, Gerard Petrus Fieret, who was apprenticed as a stained glass maker, became famous for his free-spirited portrait photography in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as for his unimpressed approach to handling his copies: they  show creases, signs of mold and decay, missing edges and are covered all over in his signature and stamp.

Fieret, who is represented by New York based gallerist Deborah Bell, has been featured in a big retrospective  at the Photomuseum Den Haag in 2004 as well as in the group exhibition "Modern Times" at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in 2015, etablishing him as an important voice of twentieth century photography.

G.P. Fieret, who struggled with mental disorders and was inclined to generate - both artistic and very real - chaos around him, died in 2009, after he spent his last years in a neglected apartment, he inhabited with numerous cats and pigeons.
