BERLIN is a collection of pre-WW2 photographs from various sources and authors. It illustrates Berlin during the rise of the Nazi Party and National Socialism. The photographs are a kaleidoscope of carnival street pictures, political manifestations, social events, street scenes and cityscapes. The juxtapositions and combinations of those images, as well as the various cut-out images, give this small format book a certain raw and powerful energy. A critical view of mid-1930s Berlin.

Preface by French author, journalist and songwriter Pierre Mac Orlan (Pierre Dumarchey). Orlan wrote also the preface for the French edition of the photobook classic ATGET PHOTOGRAPHIE DE PARIS from 1931 (E. Weyhe, New York). The German language edition can be seen HERE.

Berlin is the first book in the intended series TOUR DU MONDE. The second book, LONDRES, was published the following year.

Published by B. Arthaud – Éditeur – Grenoble 1935.
