Format: Hardcover
The Lost Border is the astonishing and powerful visual record of that transformation, published on the fifteenth anniversary of the wall's collapse. Acclaimed photographer Brian Rose began shooting the borderlands between East and West -- from the Baltic Sea down to the Adriatic -- in the early 1980s, while the Cold War was still hot, and has been taking pictures of this eerie terrain ever since. The Lost Border documents the gradual disintegration of the Berlin Wall and the busy reclamation of what was -- and sometimes still remains -- a scarred and brutalized landscape.

I have lived all over the former Eastern Bloc of countries and was living in Germany when the Wall came down. We took a day trip from Wurtzburg to Cheb in Czechoslovakia and I saw the patrolled/fortified border that divided Europe. I did the same type of trip from Luneburg to Schwerin, crossing the East German border a few days later, once again crossing "no mans land" into a country that had been unthinkable to enter, just a few months earlier. The division of Europe has always fascinated me and I studied many classes in Soviet/Cold war politics at University. As such I wanted to buy this book, which I had presumed would be fascinating and bring back those memories of a forgotten border. I must say, as far as it goes it is a fascinating pictorial account of the old border. The problem is that there is very little descriptions or maps showing the exact locations of the wonderful photographs. I have tried locating the place the pictures were taking on things like Google maps but its impossible.

As far as the book goes its a great pictorial account of a journalists journey travelling down the "Iron Curtain" border from Germany and what he saw. If you want anything else from this book like some real political context of even locations for a lot of the photographs then this book is sadly lacking.

Great pictorial account but lacks maps and analysis of what he saw.

Obviously, the book is a true exception and there is not much of a competition. Very nice pictures, capturing the spirit of the moment, the division oh so painful as it once was. It is more of an artbook, and I gather it must be simply acknowledged as that. For if you think you'll get a detailed picture and more facts about the iron curtain, this book is not it.
The iron curtain between the two Germanies gets most attention. It always had, no matter what publication.
So, my sigh goes to the poorly covered continuation of the iron curtain further south. For this price, I'll expect at least a precise description of where the photos were taken and when. Secondly, there is no excuse for the claim that the iron curtain south of german-german border was not so easily visible, when it simply is not true and witnesses more of the effort for excusing the selection of pictures, than a real quality research before undertaking the journey.
All in all, a good artbook, but could have been muuuuch better.
