Great book on the fairly unknown Schroter. “Before he left the GDR in 1985, Erasmus Schrﾚter was one of the most important representatives of the young East German narrative photography scene. Trained at the Leipziger Hochschule fﾟr Grafik und Buchkunst, his photos were secretly held in high regard. His images from 1979-1985 tread a thin line between documentary photography and unique artistic expression, breaking every clichﾎ about daily life in the GDR.”
