Artur Walther spent 20 years on Wall Street as an investment banker. As he neared the end of his career, he decided that rather than retire, he would develop a passion. That passion became photography, leading him to take more than a dozen classes at ICP and eventually to earn a place on the organization's board. It’s a position he held in one form or another for 16 years. For his commitment to ICP and the field of photography, he is being recognized as the 2016 Infinity Award winner: Trustee.
Over the years, Walter’s greatest passion became collecting. He converted his mother’s house in Ulm, Germany into an exhibition space and has slowly amassed the world’s largest privately held collection of African photography. He has exhibited the work across the world and published many renowned books,.
Walther is less concerned with the “perfect moment.” For him, it’s about “understanding and learning and investigating certain themes and cultures.”
