Synopsis: "Berliners have chosen to leave traces of the worst of themselves in their architecture and landscape. They have understood what a largely amnesiac America has not: reform relies on memory." Mitch Epstein



In 2008 Mitch Epstein won the Berlin Prize in Arts and Letters and was awarded a six-month residency at the American Academy in Berlin. Epstein proudly accepted the offer and initially planned to read and reflect in the academy's comfortable surroundings. But he could not ignore the call of contemporary Berlin for long.



As a Jewish-American whose relatives died in the Holocaust, Germany has since held an uneasy resonance for Epstein and his family. Epstein set out to confront this past by photographing the remnants of Berlin's war and postwar histories. The resulting images - including the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, fashion billboards at Checkpoint Charlie, the Jewish Memorial at Potsdammer Platz and the Dalai Lama speaking at the Brandenburg Gate - reveal Berlin's present to be a fraught accumulation of the layers of its past.

About the Author: Mitch Epstein was born in 1952 in Holyoke, Massachusetts. He is one of America's most distinguished colour photographers. His work has been shown and collected by museums and galleries worldwide, including, in New York, The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum and The Whitney. His previous books include In Pursuit of India, Vietnam: A Book of Changes and The City. Epstein has won many awards, among them a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2002 and the Kraszna-Kraus Book Prize in 2005, both for Family Business.

Book Description Mitch Epstein wurde 2008 mit dem »Berlin Prize in Arts and Letters« ausgezeichnet und von der American Academy für ein halbes Jahr nach Berlin eingeladen. Er folgte diesem Ruf und freute sich darauf, in den ehrwürdigen Hallen der Akademie zu lesen und nachzudenken. Doch daraus wurde nichts: Schon bald trieb es den Fotografen auf die Straßen Berlins, und die Stadt nahm ihn gefangen. Mitch Epstein stammt aus einer jüdisch-amerikanischen Familie. Viele seiner Vorfahren fielen dem Holocaust zum Opfer. So lag es nahe, in Berlin nach den Spuren der Shoah zu suchen. Doch Epstein fokussiert nicht nur auf das »Dritte Reich«. Er zeigt verschiedene Epochen, die sich in Berlin wie Gesteinsschichten übereinander abgelagert haben. Friedlich weidende Elefanten in Lichtenberg; Mannequins mit strahlend weißen Zähnen auf einer Werbetafel am Checkpoint Charlie; der Dalai Lama auf einem Monitor am Brandenburger Tor - Epstein zeigt Berlins Hang zum Surrealen und gießt menschliches Pathos in komplexe Form. Mitch Epstein, geboren 1952 in Holyoke, Massachusetts, zählt zu den bedeutendsten amerikanischen Fotografen der Gegenwart. 30 x 25 cm, 33 Seiten, Leinen im Schuber. Bookseller Inventory # 517852
