Heynowski & Scheumann: Operacion Silencio Chile nach Salvador Allende. Edited by Heynowski & Scheumann and documented by Peter Hellmich. Right up there with Kannibalen as one of the great German Photobooks of the post-war era, at a fraction of the price.
Operacion Silencio documents the 1973 Chillean Coup. Profuse with emotive and often harrowing images the book is a powerful document of one of the most turbulent and violent events in the history of South America. Often compared to Keon Wessing's Chili September 1973 in both style and content; we feel the book is perhaps even more successful considering the careful editing of the Heynowski & Scheumann duo
