From 23 February to 13 April 2014, the Einart Gallery in Rangsdorf will be showing the exhibition Vor Zeiten (Earlier Times) with images by reportage photographer Harald Hauswald.
Born in 1954, Hauswald has worked for numerous German magazines including STERN, Geo and ZEIT, as well as being a founding member of the famous Ostkreuz Agency. He became widely known for his striking black and white photographs of everyday life in the GDR, photographing – in the words of a Stasi report – "every aspect of the most dismal and primitive underclass existence he could conceivable find".
For the photographer, his work was a declaration of his love for the GDR and East Berlin – well observed, empathic and full of humour. Just like his role model Henri Cartier-Bresson, Hauswald found his images on the streets.
From 23 February, his work will be displayed at the Einart Gallery under the title of Vor Zeiten – an accompanying book of the same name has been released by Lehmstedt Publishing.
