Ulrich Wüst: Stadtbilder | Nachlass Reviewed in Los Angeles Times

Ulrich Wüst: Stadtbilder | Nachlass has been reviewed by Christopher Knight in the Los Angeles Times.
"Barely a single living soul is glimpsed in 48 black-and-white urban photographs from the late 1970s and early 1980s by Berlin-based Ulrich Wüst. When people are there, they’re typically obscured behind the windshield of a car on an otherwise empty city street, hidden within a dark sidewalk shadow in the composition’s margins or far off in the distance, back near the vanishing point of a brick roadway lined with shabby buildings."
