In part, this book serves as a reaction to the obstruction in social momentum caused by the Berlin Wall by focusing on seemingly insignificant details in the Kreuzberg district (of Berlin) and its inhabitants. Through his dramatic perspectives and keen use of architectural/landscape details, Schmidt creates an air of inconsolable emptiness in his images of the Wall and those affected by it. Produced in a small edition. Recognized as one of the most important photography books of the 20th century. Item #1629
