One of Germany’s greatest modernist writers—he is often called “the German James Joyce”—Arno Schmidt (1914–1979) used photography to document settings for prospective stories, to compose still lifes and to portray landscapes around his hometown, Bargeld in northern Germany. First exhibited in 2003, Schmidt's little-known photographic oeuvre is now gathered in this handsome volume.
