Softcover, published by "Bezirksamt Wedding von Berlin".

“Berlin-Wedding” is a photographic project produced from 1976 to 1978. When the images appeared in 1978 – initially as a gallery publication appearing in Verlag A. Nagel – their unusual visual language rapidly made them into a topic of contemporary discussion on the revival of traditional photography. As a consequence of this work Michael Schmidt became co-founder of a new trend, whereby a number of young photographers attempted to implement their individual ways of seeing in large-scale projects without the constraints of a commission – later, this came to be known as "Autorenfotografie". Although he employed every technical and creative possibility to achieve the greatest conceivable objectivity in his representation, the choice of motifs already indicates a subjective approach. In these cityscapes topographic depiction is not the decisive factor; instead, existing social values are revealed against the background of urban areas and their condition. (Berlinische Galerie)
