For the third book in the City Diaries series, renowned photographer Peter Bialobrzeski returns to his hometown of Wolfsburg, Germany to document the changes the city has undergone in the years since he left. Once considered a "socialist dream" by the photographer, the home of Volkswagen's international headquarters and the world's biggest car plant now bears the mark of a typical industrial town. The city's cultural attractions have given way to impersonal concrete shopping malls and the infamous Autostadt. 

Bialobrzeski captures the cities people and architecture with mechanical precision, conveying the sense of a city that has traded away its identity as an inefficiency and fully embraced its position in the capitalist machine.
