9783829606592: Anders Petersen: Café Lehmitz. Photographs

Café Lehmitz, a beer joint at the Reeperbahn, was a meeting point for many who worked in Hamburg's red-light district: prostitutes, pimps, transvestites, workers, and petty criminals. Anders Petersen was 18 years old when he first visited Hamburg in 1962, chanced upon Cafe Lehmitz, and established friends that made an impact on his life. In 1968 he returned to Lehmitz, found new "regulars," renewed contact, and began to take pictures. His photographs, which we first published in book form in 1978, have become classics of their genre--Tom Waits used our cover picture for his LP Raindogs. Their candidness and authenticity continue to move the viewer. The solidarity evident in them prevents voyeurism or false pity arising vis-a-vis a milieu generally referred to as "asocial." The "other" world of Cafe Lehmitz, which no longer exists in this form, becomes visible as a lively community with its own self-image and dignity.

Book Description Schirmer , Mosel Verlag Gm Mai 2017, 2017. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. Neuware - Café Lehmitz, eine Stehbierhalle am Ende der Reeperbahn, war ein Treffpunkt und oft auch die Endstation für viele, die in Hamburgs berühmt-berüchtigtem Rotlichtviertel arbeiten: Prostituierte, Zuhälter, Transvestiten und gewöhnliche Kleinkriminelle. Anders Petersen (geb. 1944) war achtzehn Jahre alt, als er aus Schweden nach Hamburg zu Besuch kam, eher zufällig im Lehmitz landete und hier Freundschaften schloss, die seinen weiteren Lebensweg prägen sollten. 1968 kommt er zurück, findet neue Stammgäste vor, nimmt wieder Kontakt auf und beginnt zu photographieren mit Unterbrechungen zwei Jahre lang. Seine Aufnahmen, von denen wir 1978 eine Auswahl veröffentlichten, sind inzwischen zu Klassikern ihres Genres geworden Tom Waits etwa verwendete unser Titelmotiv für seine LP Rain Dogs.Petersens Lehmitz-Serie, die wir jetzt in einer Neuauflage anbieten, berührt noch immer durch ihre Offenheit und ihre unverfälschte Authentizität. Es ist der solidarische, an Brassaï erinnernde Blick des Photographen, der weder Voyeurismus noch falsches Mitleid aufkommen lässt angesichts dieser Bilder aus einem Milieu, das gemeinhin als asozial bezeichnet wird. Die andere Welt des Café Lehmitz, die heute so nicht mehr existiert, wird sichtbar als lebendiges soziales Gefüge mit eigenem Selbstverständnis und in der ihr eigenen Würde.Anders Petersen, der in Stockholm lebt und arbeitet, wurde 2008 mit dem Erich-Salomon-Preis ausgezeichnet. 116 pp. Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch.
