Kai-Olaf Hesse combed through old family albums to discover and reveal his weighty inheritance. Only two generations back, the memories are already faded. Yet these two generations have a deep impact, and it is precisely this narrow slice of time and society that Hesse presents in this book. The private visual records from roughly 1925 to 1985 simply show people – grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends – as marking coordinates in personal lives and German history, from the Weimar Republic and the Third Reich, to post-war reconstruction and the arrival of modernity. Arranged intuitively rather than chronologically, the photos act as a unique internalization of this inheritance.
