In the book by the photo artist Sebastian Kusenberg, who has also been working with sculptures for 15 years, small worlds bloom: romantic and quietly comical, they insist on their right to be included in the picture. His LITTLE PEOPLE, which were created from the unchanged scraps of his larger wooden sculptures, have corners and edges and character in abundance. Each character lives their own uniqueness – no one wants to be anything other than exactly the same. The works of art are accompanied by a text in 8 chapters by the well-known author Sten Nadolny.

“…Some of us still believe that they have an unbroken, linear origin, that they are identical or authentic or solid wood. Nonsense! Our genes don't care one bit about that. You have two parents, four grandparents, sixteen great-grandparents, you are a hodgepodge of scraps swept together!…” – Sten Nadolny

About Sten Nadolny:

Born in Zehdenick an der Havel in 1942, grew up in Upper Bavaria. Studied history, first became a high school teacher, then a production manager for feature films, then a writer. In 1983 his long-seller “The Discovery of Slowness” about the Arctic explorer John Franklin was published. All of his eight novels (except for the first novel: Netzkarte) end with the death of the hero (in one case: the heroine), but always accompanied by the wisdom and irony that calms the end. Nadolny has received nine literary prizes and lives in Berlin."
