Yussof Knauss

Yussof (Jürgen) Knauss, born in Darmstadt in 1938, trained typesetter and graphic artist. Exhibitions in Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Kitzbühel and Venice. Yussof Knauss worked as a layout designer, creative director, managing partner and most recently as chairman for the Heye advertising agency from 1964 to 2014. In 1994 he was named Man of the Year in the German advertising industry. In 1989, after the death of F. W. Heye, he took over Heye Verlag with his wife Claudia, who was also responsible. They ran the publishing house until they left in 2012 and, through a merger, made it the largest calendar publisher in Germany. During this time, his passion for photography resulted in several books and calendars that received multiple awards. Yussof Knauss photographs with a careful eye on the world that surrounds him. Be it traveling to the southern end of this world, to Patagonia; or at the southern end of his world, in Seeshaupt on Lake Starnberg. Yussof Knauss lives with his wife in Munich and on Lake Starnberg.
