Gunter Sachs (1973)
photo: unknown, license fair-use


Swiss photographer, author, industrialist and astrological researcher, of German origin. In his younger years his public image was that of the archetypal rich playboy. To court his second wife, the actress Brigitte Bardot, he flew over her villa near Saint Tropez in a helicopter and dropped hundreds of roses.

He committed suicide by gunshot, revealing in a note that he was suffering from an illness (possibly Alzheimer's), at his home in Gstaad, Switzerland on 7 May 2011.

In 2014, his family published posthumously his second astrology book, Mein astrologisches Vermächtnis: Das Geheimnis von Liebe, Glück und Tod (My astrological legacy: The secret of love, happiness and death).
