In Thee

— Martin Luther

Quote from The Hip Pocket Guide To Offbeat Wisdom by William Sauer

Backstory: Gefreiter Dieter Sauerbrey was a small part of a grand Project – the failure of which does not negate the Project or the Memory it anticipated, only the errors that prevented the Dream from emerging. (The term ‘Die vordeutende Erinnerung’ is from H. Marcuse’s ‘Über den affirmativen Charakter der Kultur’). — TAG

Altfather





Old age is the most unexpected of things that can happen to a man.
— Leon Trotsky

Backstory: The Old Dad (“Altfather” auf Deutsch) in this shot can’t really be me. I’m still just a kid. But this individual is holding one of my all time favourite cameras: a Nikon D200. A wonderful piece of equipment that I use daily, it is – like me – hopelessly obsolete. Oh well. — TAG

Equipment: Fuji Z33 WP (resting on top of a bottle of Kodak HC-110 developer, self timer mode)
