About the Author

Hans Schaufus

Hans Schaufus was born in Baltimore in 1940. In the midst of the Cold War, he was called back to active duty during the Berlin Crisis. Although his unit was never sent to Berlin, the curiosity of seeing the city was too great to ignore. Not wanting to go to Germany as a tourist, decided to live and work there during between 1962-64.  Hans was fortunate to have had an uncle who was a professional press photographer and under his tutelage was taught the rudiments of composition, angles, light and darkroom printing. During his time in Germany, he visited East Berlin several times unaware that he would one day return to East Germany and document the changeover from the communist era to today's modern landscape.
