From the publisher: "Michael Schmidt, born in Berlin 1945, is one of Germany's most famous photographers. In this artist's book, he traces the universal iconography of political systems and the images of humankind they project. Addressing the complex relationships between the individual and the state, he asks how we can resist the loss of individuality inherent in systems of mass control."
