Item description for Michael Ruetz: Eye on Time by Michael Ruetz...

Since the 1960s, Berlin-based Michael Ruetz has photographed hundreds of urban scenes and landscapes throughout Europe. His works make time and transience visible. In Berlin, he traced the effects of political and societal upheaval on architecture and public space--buildings appeared and disappeared, vacant lots and gardens were developed, Marx-Engels-Platz was renamed Schlo platz while Potsdamer Platz was transformed from a no-man's land into a high-rise district, all of which caused Berlin's skyline to rapidly transform--a destabilizing event for a city's inhabitants. Ruetz's series of photographs are like short films that develop over a long period of time--landscape and cityscape become timescape. This monograph is a time-lapse document that bears witness to how architecture shapes and reshapes our habitats and how interpretation triumphs over our perception.

Reviews - What do customers think about Michael Ruetz: Eye on Time?

Charting the difficult evolution of a vibrant city  Jul 18, 2008
Combining nostalgia with the persistence of an archeologist --and grounding his study with a touching personal connection-- photographer Michael Ruetz charts the changes undergone by the city of Berlin during one of the most intense periods of its history; between the fall of the Berlin Wall, through the German Re-unification, until the turn of the century and its --once more-- establishment as the German capital.
