The book with German text is a striking photo-essay that documents West Berlin in the years just before the fall of the Berlin Wall and contains 39 full page duotones with one being gate folded. “Waffenruhe” is cited in both Martin Parr & Gerry Badger’s, The Photobook: A History Volume II and Andrew Roth’s, The Open Book. Commenting on the book, the New York Times wrote, “Schmidt "represents what is most promising about the New European photography. Working in a style that is impressionistic and seemingly casual, he fashions images that are simultaneously personal and political". Martin Parr sums it up best when he writes, “, "through Schmidt's dramatic perspective and keen eye for telling details and subtle nuances, he creates an air of inconsolable emptiness in his images of The Wall and those affected by it. These photographs will leave you speechless."
