In 2018, I was asked by Richard West at Source magazine to contribute reviews of republished photobooks, a genre that had been growing in popularity.

The first of these reviews was of Michael Schmidt’s 1987 book Waffenruhe, an atmospheric evocation of Berlin before the Wall came down. It was published in Source, 95 (Autumn 2018).
