Robert Lebeck (1929 – 2014) was an award-winning German photojournalist. Self-taught as a photographer, he started in 1952 as a freelancer selling to various newspapers and magazines in Heidelberg.
Lebeck then went on to be employed by the magazines Illustrierte wie Revue and Kristall, and finally by the German weekly news magazine Stern. He worked for Stern for thirty years as a photojournalist, with a brief sabbatical during 1977 to 1978, as editor-in-chief of the monthly educational magazine Geo.
Lebeck became well known in 1960 after his report on the independence of the Congo "Afrika im Jahre Null" ("Africa in Year Zero") which included a photograph of an African boy, Ambroise Boimbo, standing beside the steel scabbard of Belgian King Baudouin. To this day that picture remains his ‘calling card’. [wiki]
