The Complete Café Lehmitz Family Album

The Complete Café Lehmitz Family Album
First published in 1978, Anders Petersen’s selected pictures of Café Lehmitz, a bar and its regulars—prostitutes, pimps, peons, petty crooks—in Hamburg’s Reeperbahn red-light district, are a milestone of social documentary photography. This volume for the first time presents the entire material, contacts of some 1,400 pictures, showing the world of Café Lehmitz, which no longer exists, as a social fabric with its own identity and dignity.

Schirmer/Mosel. 240 pages, 1440 photographs on 40 contact sheet and 88 duotone plates. Size: 26 x 32 cm, softcover. German edition.

Pub date: Tuesday 15 January, 2019.
