Hauswald chronicled ordinary life in East Berlin in the 1970s and 80s, a time when such an activity was strictly forbidden. Born in 1954 near Dresden, Hauswald graduated from photograpy school in 1976 and then travelled through the GDR to Berlin documenting what he saw, despite being already under state surveillance. His images offer a rare glimpse of everyday life in Berlin in these times, and Hauswald continues to document reunified Germany today.
Harald Hauswald: Auferstanden aus Ruinen is at the Pool Gallery until November 14. More info is here.
