NW Voices Presents Photographer Hans Schaufus

Come join us for our next NW Voices event on Wednesday, February 19 featuring local photographer and author Hans Schaufus. The author will present a workshop from 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. at LCC in Health Science 104 and a presentation at the Longview Public Library beginning at 7:00 p.m.

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 between 1962 and 1964. Hans was fortunate to have had an uncle who was a professional press photographer and under his tutelage learned 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. This happened upon his retirement from the Longview Public Library, when he had the time to embark on a more serious photographic undertaking from 2006 until 2014, resulting in a book published in 2015 entitled, Am Ende der Strasse links: Eine Reise durch die ehemalige DDR (At the End of the Street on the Left: A Trip Through the former GDR).

All events are free and open to the public. Northwest Voices is funded by the Longview Public Library and Lower Columbia College, Friends of the Longview Library, Longview Library Foundation, and the LCC Foundation.
