"Georg Einbeck came to photography as an amateur painter in Hamburg, where, after setting up as a shopkeeper in 1896, he took classes given by the brothers Theodor and Oskar Hofmeister. A year after arriving in the city he joined the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Amateur-Photographie (Society for the Promotion of Amateur Photography) and took part in its exhibitions over the next two years. He designed the posters and won a medal for his photographs. He records that in 1898, while in Paris, he took classes given by Henri Matisse. In 1899 he moved to Dresden. His work was to be found in the Berlin Secessionist exhibitions of 1903-07. In 1906 he traveled to North Africa and the south of France, and spent World War I in Switzerland."
