Birgitte Roeggen

Birgitte Roeggen (23 June 1940 – 10 April 1962), famously known as the “Fifth Wednesday Club”. Originally playing bass with the band she left to pursue a career as an artist. Her relationship with photographer Astrid Kirchherr was instrumental in forming the Wednesday Club’s early image (tight white shorts/tight white football tops).

She is pictured here, on 6th April 1961, with the original 4 Wednesday Club members in Hamburgstrassen, Hamburg, looking moody.
