Das Land des Lächelns
The 80s are not that long ago, but optically a lot has changed.
The black and white photographs show everyday life in a West German province. These pictures were taken in the early 1980s in Ostwestfalen-Lippe, specifically in its cities of Bielefeld, Detmold, Herford, Gütersloh and Paderborn. Also in the woods and fields somewhere in between; nevertheless, this kind of photographic approach falls into the genre of street photography. So we see the stage of everyday life; in addition, motifs that arose on the fringes of local spectacles appear.
