"Few photographers have captured life on Berlin's streets, squares and courtyards, in commerce, at the workbenches, in pubs and at festivals as multifacetedly, humorously and with as much sense of poetry as Uwe STEINBERG. The Berlin photographs of the dedicated photo reporter range from observations in the old central market hall at Alexanderplatz from the early 1960s to insights into the industrial working world of the 1970s in eastern Berlin to a long-term study of Schönhauser Allee, which sought to capture life in the big city in a complex way.
However, due to the photographer's early death as a result of a traffic accident in 1983, most of the photographs remained unpublished. Late, but not too late, Uwe STEINBERG's weighty contribution to East German auteur photography is now honored for the first time with this publication initiated by Norbert Bunge."

"Quietly, Uwe Steinberg's pictures come along, are very personal and capture the magic of a very special moment." (Der Tagesspiegel)
