Michael Schmidt: Photographs 1965–2014

Text by Ute Esklidsen, Janos Frecot, Peter Galassi, Heinz Liesbrock, Thomas Weski.

An enormous and definitive appraisal of Michael Schmidt, Berlin’s greatest chronicler in the postwar period

Author of now-classic photobooks such as Waffenruhe and Berlin-Wedding, Berlin-based photographer Michael Schmidt (1945-2014) was acclaimed in his lifetime for his black-and-white, documentary-style depictions of his native city. This is the first full appraisal of his work, featuring numerous images of working material such as work prints or book dummies, as well as archival material—invitation cards, posters and exhibition views. Essays by Ute Eskildsen, Janos Frecot, Peter Galassi, Heinz Liesbrock and Thomas Weski, who worked closely with Schmidt on various projects during his lifetime, complement these materials.

Schmidt was born on 6 October 1945 in East Berlin, five months after the German surrender. His family crossed to West Berlin before the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961. His earliest series on Berlin, Stadtlandschaft (Urban Landscapes) (1974-75) and Berlin, Stadtbilder (Berlin, Urban Images) (1976-80), established the idiom he would pursue for the rest of his life.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Photo Eye

Christian Patterson

This much-anticipated 400-page retrospective exhibition catalog chronicles the life and work of Michael Schmidt, one of the most important and influential post-war German photographers and photographic bookmakers [...] Schmidt’s life, his teaching and work were heroic, and this book is a much-deserved and fitting monument to him.
