Miron Zownir’s “Berlin Noir” chronicles the wild urban life of Berlin over the last 40 years, where nonconformists, rebels and artists appeared to enjoy unrestrained freedom. These photographs portray Berlin’s cityscape halfway between a set of gloomy sceneries and spontaneous exhilarations.
Known as a “Poet of Radical Photography”, Miron Zownir has released pictures exhibited in galleries alongside artworks by Goya, Picasso, and Andy Warhol. His fascination for unsuitable and unrestricted cities led him to New York in the 1980s. This book stays in line with his direct style, which perfectly captures the essence of such a peculiar metropolis.
The elegant quarter binding as well as the spot varnish do justice to this astonishing crude photography book that was printed using LE-UV technology.
This publication was released by PogoBooks – a Berlin-based independent publishing company with a self-described editorial focus on photography, painting, drawing and contemporary nonsense.
