Fade Out

  A chronological selection from the photographs I took between June 30, 2015 and June 9, 2016. The title pictures are a bit older though, and the paraphernalia plus the black-and-white photo of the advertising airship date back to the twentieth century.

The small airship flew over my parents' house and garden on June 30, 1965. This beautiful event could not be captured, since none of us (my mother, her friend, her friend's young son, and me) had a camera at hand. My father's camera was stowed away somewhere, but he did not get back home from work timely enough to find it and photograph the airship.  

When my father arrived, the airship had gone, and so he took pictures of our little garden party. Fifty years later I went back to the garden of the old house (I sold it after my parents had died in 2012) and captured the empty skies above it. Together with a photo of the album with the prints showing our summer's day in June 1965, this is the first picture of this book.  

The book ends with another restaged childhood event: I sit in front of the same house in Hamburg-Langenhorn (a toy store then, now an office coordinating geriatric care) where I sat exactly fifty years earlier. The pages in between are filled with the photographs of a less important time in my life, and it was a time in which my own photographs became less important for me. Maybe one day I will be able to remember moments without the help of a camera.
