WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT THEY SAW - Vintage Press Pictures

October 23, 2013November 23, 2013
Flo Peters Gallery presents an exhibition of press photographies, kept under wraps for a long time. On this occasion, an old press archive opened its doors for the first time, allowing to put together an exciting show full of real snap shots. Pictures that tell vividly about their decades - exclusively and only in raw, unretouched original shots. These undisguised documents of their times offer insights into life and society of the 1950s to the -90s in Germany and internationally. Their subjects show a wide range from politics and current affairs over far-reaching world historical events up to nostalgic scenes of film stars and other celebrities.
