Typical!? Freiburg and the region in photos by Willy Pragher

Augustinermuseum – Haus der Graphischen Sammlung

On Münsterplatz you can buy hot sausages for 70 pfennigs, students protest on Kaiser-Joseph-Straße, a flock of sheep grazes in front of the town hall and the Schauinsland becomes a car race track. Willy Pragher's black-and-white and early colour photographs tell of life in the post-war period up to the 1980s. The Berlin-born press photographer made Freiburg his adopted home. His pictures of the city and the region are historically informative and thoroughly entertaining.
