David Hlynsky’s Window-Shopping through the Iron Curtain

Beautiful pictures of David Hlynsky:

Between 1986 and 1990, Hlynsky took more than 8,000 photos, including 500 portraits of shop windows. Almost 200 of these now feature in his new book, Window-Shopping Through the Iron Curtain, a fascinating view of an old era of consumerism that began to crumble with the Berlin Wall in 1989.
