MANFRED PAUL: EN PASSANT. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 84 pp. 24 x 31 cm. ISBN 9783944669953 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Berlin-based since 1968, photographer Manfred Paul (b. 1942) is one of the main exponents of "auteur photography." As a teacher he opened the eyes of several generations of photographers and designers. The work in this slender monograph was created "in passing" between 1986 and 1990 in East Berlin. It consists of severely cropped black-and-white pictures of women's legs, which reveal only the lower half of the person portrayed -- from the waist down and sometimes only from the knee. Elegant and at times glamorous, the images invite us to indulge in further speculation about the women. Paul's images observe the strict photographic language developed by the artists of the Neues Sehen movement a hundred years ago, though his series clearly dates to 1980s East Berlin, revealing its time period in small details such as broken cobblestone streets or a style of show typical of the period.
