About the Author: Pascal Baetens is a Belgium-based professional photographer who specialises in portrait, glamour, fashion and travel assignments. His work has featured widely in magazines, books, and exhibitions throughout Europe and North America.
German poet and musician Oswald von Wolkenstein (circa 1377-1445) made sure his legacy was secure by having his works compiled into collections during his lifetime. While he was certainly the author of the texts, it is less clear how many of the pieces, which number over 130, include his original music, and how many had his texts applied to preexisting works. In any case, it's an intriguing and attractive body of work, and this collection of 18 of his pieces, plus three other works, makes a fine introduction to his legacy.
