Walther Koenig, 2019. Second edition. Clothbound hardcover with dust jacket, 240 x 260 mm, 120 pp., 70 b/w illustrations. Photographs by Michael Schmidt. Text by Horst Bowitz, Thomas Weski (English, German).
After the reissue of Michael Schmidt's legendary photobook Waffenruhe (1987) comes a second edition of Berlin-Wedding from 1978, which has long been out of print. In it, Schmidt photographed the district of Berlin-Wedding in a documentary style, and consciously composed his black-and-white photographs in a broad palette of grey tones. Additional text for this reprint by Thomas Weski.
