Publisher's Description
Café Lehmitz, a beer joint at the Reeperbahn, was a meeting point for many who worked in Hamburg's red-light district: prostitutes, pimps, transvestites, workers, and petty criminals. Anders Petersen was 18 years old when he first visited Hamburg in 1962, chanced upon Café Lehmitz, and established friends that made an impact on his life. In 1968 he return ed to Lehmitz, found new 'regulars', renewed contact, and began to take pictures. His photographs, which we first published in book form in 1978, have become classics of their genre- Tom Waits used our cover picture for his LP Rain dogs.

Their candidness and authenticity continue to move the viewer. The solidarity evident in them prevents voyeurism or false pity arising vis-à-vis a milieu generally referred to as 'asocial.' The 'other' world of Café Lehmitz, which no longer exists in this form, becomes visible as a lively community with its own self-image and dignity.
