In the book by the photo artist Sebastian Kusenberg, who has also been dealing with sculptures for 15 years, small worlds bloom: romantic and with a gentle comedy, they insist on their right to be brought into the picture. Created from the unaltered cuttings of his larger wood sculptures, his LITTLE PEOPLE have rough edges and character in abundance. Each character has its own uniqueness - none of them want to be anything other than exactly like that. The works of art are accompanied by a text in 8 chapters by the well-known author Sten Nadolny.

"...Some of us still believe they have an unbroken, linear lineage, that they are identical, or authentic, or solid wood. Nonsense! Our genes don't care a whit. You have two parents, four grandparents, sixteen great-grandparents, you're 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: Netzkarte) end with the death of the hero (in one case: the heroine), but always accompanied by the wisdom and irony that calmly faces the end. Nadolny has received nine literary prizes and lives in Berlin."
