| When There Was Still an East and a West Berlin
For more than forty years Nelly Rau-Häring wandered the streets of the city with her camera. She pursued her two great passions: her enthusiasm for photography and her curiosity about Berlin’s residents. Along with her virtuoso eye for strongly expressive details, these things make her a special type of chronicler. She always narrates history through the small moments of everyday life, the atmosphere on the streets, and the energetic activities of the people. She traveled through both West and East Berlin, capturing contemporary life on film through faces, shop windows, and building panoramas. To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Hatje Cantz is releasing this splendid photography book. It provides a comprehensive look at this photographic universe, whose pictures are the expression of personal devotion, as well as of historical significance.NELLY RAU-HÄRING (*1947, Basel) moved to Berlin in 1965 to study photography at the Lette Verein. Besides her street photography, her press and advertising photos for magazines such as Du and die horen, among others, gained a great deal of attention.
