Ludwig Windstosser was born in 1921 in Munich, Germany.
He was one of the co-founders of the influential German group fotoform. This group wanted to offer an alternative to postwar German photography, which had been marked by Nazi propaganda, by introducing a new language of form that used the vocabulary of the Neues Sehen movement of the 1920s.
He produced several books, including "Das Stuttgart Buch", "Schwabisch Gmund", "Martin Knoller, Seine Kuppelfresken in Der Abteikirche Neresheim" and "Heilbronn". His work is included in the "Schupmann Collection, Fotografie in Deutschland nach 1945".
His photographs are held in a number of institutional collections, including Ruhrlandmuseum Essen, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
He died in 1983 in Stuttgart, Germany.
