Book “Milli Bau – Seidenstrasse / Silk Road 1956- 1974”
In 1956, the journalist and photographer Milli Bau set out in a VW-bus to explore the countries along the Silk Road. She spent a longer period of time at some locations, but only passed through others. She later lived in Tehran and worked as a correspondent. Her Rolleiflex and her journal accompanied her on her extraordinary journey, to lands of which some can hardly still be visited today. In her photographs, it is possible to see nearly twenty years of cultural and contemporary history. The publication is a document of contemporary history by a traveling journalist who left Germany in the nineteen-fifties and found herself in the world. Milli Bau is an outstanding example of the life of a woman who should not be forgotten.
