New Book on Erich Retzlaff

A while back I provided some images for an exhibition on German photographer
Erich Retzlaff, active during the Nazi era.  That book on the exhibition has just appeared, and should be interesting for anyone interested in photography during the Third Reich.

The author is Christopher Webster van Tonder, and the book is published by Aberystwyth University’s School of Art.

Awesome! This book can be read for free online too. What I didn't know was how 'covert' much of these photographs are from the 3rd reich. I mean that without showing something obviously political they are still strong propaganda. Basically this study is very interesting and it opened my eyes to how photography has been used especially in the hitler times.
