Gisèle Freund's Portraits of Post-War Berlin

New York Times' Michael Kimmelman reviews Gisèle Freund's photographs of post-war Berlin at the Willy Brandt Haus in Berlin.

Not all culture is global yet. Outside aging lefty circles in Greenwich Village or the Berkshires, the photographer Gisèle Freund mostly causes head-scratching in the United States. Among other reasons, she published unflattering pictures of Eva Perón in Life magazine in 1950, troubling the Argentine dictator and ruffling diplomatic relations, so the State Department officially declared her an "unwanted person."
