"Behind the Iron Curtain, against all odds, photography flourished as an art in the German Democratic Republic. The many images in this volume amply demonstrate that fact while also providing an illustrated social history of people 'caught' in the conflicting dictates of ideology, artistic oppression, a troubled national past, and basic human desires."
