BOB SALA is a founding member of the “Romantic Dogs” and bought his first own car when he was 30. At times he seeks pride in lacking any kind of worldly ambition - born in Germany, he now lives in a secret library among his fellow brothers and sisters of long forgotten decades.
He mastered the art of postponing things in his 20s by finding salvation in the mundane. Following the example of Saul Leiter (one of his idols), he feels there is no need for a hurry. He moved South to a wine region this past summer. Maybe it’s the last thing you’ll hear from him. But who knows.
“...a photographer with the soul of a barman...”
— El Pais
"His images go beyond making a fashion statement on a particular era; they tell a story of society and culture.“
“Nostalgic feelings, muted colours, 60s and 70s records, book lovers and lots of pretty girls. These are the ingredients of the work by the German based photographer and writer Bob Sala.”
"Themed with music, literature, and a nostalgic sense of past times like the charming look of the 1960s/70s, his images of beautiful girls are characterized by an authentic look of analog photography."
