City Image Cologne
by Wolfgang Vollmer
Publisher's Description
Cologne doesn’t have quite the historical reputation of Berlin, but it has been quietly drawing the gaze of photographers, both foreign and domestic, for over 100 years. In this publication, Cologne’s unique urban character emerges in pictures. Elegance and decay, landmarks and backyards, industrial wastelands and new shopping centers, are captured by generations of photographers including Margaret Bourke- White, Dirk Reinartz, Julius Shulman, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Friedrich Seidenstücker, August Sander, Boris Becker and Hermann Claasen. The images range from street scenes to panoramic cityscapes to historical documents. For example, Margaret Bourke-White famously captured the Hohenzollern Bridge soon after its 1945 collapse during WWII. Sourced from the vast photo archive of the Cologne-based Stiftung Kultur, the photographs are augmented with essays by Gabriele Conrath-Scholl, Jürgen Becker and Wolfgang Vollmer in a hardcover volume with 158 black-and-white and color plates.
