"During the war, you once told me ..." (2015)

"This project (which comprises 55 photographs) is about the lives of humble people during World War II, about their distress and anxiety, their desperation and hope. The central element consists of photographs from the family albums of a German family from the Eifel. The photographs show young soldiers, surrounded by their relatives and friends, and scenes from everyday life. The artist combines these with his own recent landscape photographs taken in the Eifel and with texts which he wrote himself or which he found in works by Lysias, Heinrich Böll, Hermann Michels and Natasha Radojčić The emphasis is on the universal and timeless nature of this human experience of war."
Marie-Therese Huppertz, curator


The project resulted in several exhibitions and in a book published by Nicolai Verlag Berlin (see publications).
