Review

“Streets of Crocodiles is a walk on the wild side, an expedition down a melancholy boulevard of dreams.”—J. Hoberman, film critic and author of The Red Atlantis: Communist Culture in the Absence of Communism

(“Streets of Crocodiles is a walk on the wild side, an expedition down a melancholy boulevard of dreams.” -J. Hoberman, film critic and author of The Red Atlantis: Communist Culture in the Absence of Communism)

“A beautiful and critically significant book which mixes photography and critical essays to explore postsocialism in Europe. Focused on Poland and on the city of Łódź, this is a unique and powerful document of the transformations of Eastern Europe post-Berlin Wall, and perhaps most importantly and shockingly an exposure of the much older hatreds which remain intact. . . . The photographs by Kamil Turowski are stunning and Marciniak is leading the field in cultural studies work on Eastern Europe. A reminder that 'new Europe' is also old Europe, Streets of Crocodiles is a striking accomplishment.”

(Imogen Tyler Lancaster University)

"This disturbing collection of photographs by Kanal Turowski, both color and black and white, show the city, decrepit and dead, while foreign posters advertise the excitement and promise of things to come. Katarzyna Marciniak's essay, "Eyes Wide Shut," speaks of the transition into the new European identity. . . . The book is a thoughtful discourse on the problems still facing Poland."—Polish American Journal

(Polish American Journal 2012-01-15)
