.
The cinematographer Max Fassbender was busy as a photographer before he entered the film business in 1913 where he became a demanded cinematographer of the 10s.
His first movie was "Fabrik-Marianne" (13), it followed popular movies like "Die geheimnisvolle Villa" (14), "Das Panzergewölbe" (14), "Die Toten erwachen" (15) - all movies with the figure "Stuart Webbs" as well as "Die Rache der Toten" (16),"Es werde Licht!" (17), "Das Bildnis des Dorian Gray" (17), "Der Dieb" (18), "Der lebende Leichnam" (18), "Das Tagebuch einer Verlorenen" (18), "Die Prostitution" (19), "Die Reise um die Erde in 80 Tagen" (19), "Peer Gynt" (19), "Anders als die Anderen" (19) directed by Richard Oswald and "Harakiri" (19) directed by Fritz Lang.
Most of his film works came into being for director Richard Oswald at that time.

Although Max Fassbender belonged to the well-known cinematographers of the 10s he was not able to continue his film career successfully from the middle of the 20s. At the beginning of the 20s he took part again as a cinematographer in few well-known movies like "Die Beichte einer Toten" (20), "Frauenbeichte" (21) and "Marie Antoinette - Das Leben einer Königin" (22).

After a side trip to Switzerland where he filmed "Die Entstehung der Eidgenossenschaft" (25) he returned to Germany but engagements became seldom from now on. He only realised few more movies as a cinematographer.

To his last movies belong "Das graue Haus" (26) and "Die raffinierteste Frau Berlins" (27).
