Item description for Frank Thiel: A Berlin Decade 1995-2005 by Frank Thiel...

Frank Thiel's photographs are unique reflections upon the urban landscape of Berlin, that twentieth-century patchwork of architecture and intellect. Thiel, born in 1966 in Kleinmachnow, near Berlin, describes a type of architecture in transition, the formation of a new political space within urban structures, but his real subject matter is the incomplete: he prefers the process of construction over the end result, and persistently pursues the aesthetics of temporality and change. Thiel's photographs seem to refer to a larger narrative context, yet they also explore the relationship of photography to painting and sculpture. Thiel's special ability to inscribe the dialectic relationship between ideology and aesthetics in his photographs also prevents any appearance of sentimentality. This extensive monograph is the first to feature all of Thiel's important photographic series on this theme.

Reviews - What do customers think about Frank Thiel: A Berlin Decade 1995-2005?

A Treat for the Eyes  Dec 11, 2007
OK, this book is not for everyone. The pictures show buildings or parts of buildings under construction, renovation and demolition. We get to see scaffolding, cranes, facades, rebars, and paint peeling. The colors are quite nice but the geometry and unfamiliarity of some of the objects shown are fascinating (to me, at least). They verge on abstracts, but, except for the peeling paint, don't get there.

The book is not like Edward Burtynsky, who is trying to show the grand effects and defects of industrial civilization (see Manufactured Landscapes: The Photographs of Edward Burtynsky)--Thiel's in it more purely for the strange beauty. Maybe there are landmarks I don't recognize (other than the Reichstag) but my impression is that this could be almost any major city with modern buildings. I recommend A Berlin Decade to anyone who likes architectural photography on the abstract tip.

If you like A Berlin Decade you might also like Phantom Shanghai which is about the destruction of traditional Shanghai in favor of a vertical city.
