Caption reads: “Be careful, my dear Jägersmann (Hunter man),
That woman can hurt you badly
Her arrow bears embers and fire!”
Riebicke was a sports photographer from Berlin known especially from the nudes from the film “Wege zu Kraft und Schönheit” (1925). In 1940 large parts of his archives were destroyed during a bombing. Vintage Riebicke prints have become very rare. He was the most important sport, dance and nudism (FKK) photographer in Germany between 1925 and 1935. His images were widely printed in Germany as well internationally in magazines, newspapers and books.
