Paul Huf’s Popular Album Covers

Dutch star photographer Paul Huf (1924-2002) is most famous for his work for Philips and especially the great Favourites Series with British model Ann Pickford on all sleeves. His other photographs for many Dutch popular artists in the 1960’s and later, is less documented. He made many sleeve photos for artists like Willeke Alberti, Corry Brokken, Trea Dobbs, Esther Ofarim & Abraham and of course Dutch jazz diva Rita Reys. He knew how he wanted them before his lenses: spontaneous, with a good smile and often a nice diagonal line. Most pictures are made in his own home studio, only a few were made on location. His photos are recognizable and typical of the 1960’s era. Huf used to live in the centre of the city of Amsterdam in an old building of a wine trading company in the Hazenstraat, nowadays known as the tenth street of The Jordaan. This was as close as possible to all social and cultural activity in the city. Every celebrity was keen to let him or herself photographed by the Dutch master. He was one of the most active photographers and made big money with his commercial work for Grolsch Beer, KLM, PTT (Dutch Post) and fashion photography for Avenue and other magazines. The list here is the most comprehensive list to date and never can be called complete. You can still find them today.
