Claudia Reinhardt - Widows

Publisher The Green Box

ISBN 9783962160050

Idea Code 20433

“I have always been fascinated by the dark bedrooms with their heavy oak matrimonial beds, the living rooms that were never used (at most when visitors from outside came), and the kitchens that had to be always spick and span and tidy. Symbols of a German childhood. Mirrors of a war generation that will soon no longer exist. For several years I visited more than thirty widows and photographed in their apartments. In my native town of Viernheim in southern Hesse, in Berlin, Hamburg, in the Ruhrpott and in Norway. I worked with a medium format camera, a cumbersome technique that gave me time and required a lot of patience." Claudia Reinhardt.
