Photo books from and about Cologne, as collected by Werner Schäfke in his compendium 'Cologne and his photo books: Photography in Cologne, from Cologne, for Cologne in the photo book from 1853 to 2010', offer an exciting panorama of Cologne's cityscape that is surprising in its abundance and the history of Cologne since the middle of the 19th century. They all have Cologne in view: the whole city for tourists and / or natives, individual buildings, the time of ruins and the review of 'Cologne as it was', life in Cologne biographically and in general from Carnival to 'Christopher Street Day.'
"The authors of this overview work 'Cologne and its photo books: Photography in Cologne, from Cologne, for Cologne in the photo book from 1853 to 2010' - in addition to the editor Werner Schäfke, these are also Wolfgang Vollmer and Eusebius Wirdeier - have a new perspective on Cologne and photography discovered in and for Cologne - from Johann Franz MICHIELS to August SANDER to Gerhard RICHTER. (...) Cologne has gradually come together to form a large and colorful puzzle, just like the present illustrated book, depicted through the medium of photography and created for the most part by masters in their field who have understood how to show the diversity of this old and yet so young city despite or even with the view through the viewfinder of their camera.
