Berlin, Portrait of a City
By

Rating
The spirit of Berlin. This is a photographic journey into the city's history. Berlin has survived two world wars, was divided by a wall during the Cold War, and after the fall of the Wall was re-united. The city emerged as a center of European power and culture. From 1860 to the present day, this book presents the story of Berlin in photographs, portraits, maps, and aerial views. More than a tribute to the city and its civic, social, and photographic history, this book especially pays homage to Berlin's inhabitants: full of hope and strength, in their faces is reflected Berlin's undying soul.

Reviews

"Photographic journeys through the past and present of some of the world's most iconic metropolises." "These are cut-downs of the larger versions... but manage to feel uncompromised, satisfying in the hand, still with great vintage photography, lyrical quotes, and captions... It's uplifting to find books this good at this price." "An illustrated history of Berlin. The magnificence of the German capital and its turbulent story is told through images from many international photographers... If you are interested in the history of Berlin and world-class photography, this book will be a great addition to the book-shelf." "A book full of extraordinary images of a city constantly in flux and a place that has often been prone to political and economic tensions."
