Person

Photographer

Keeping photography as a side job throughout my life has added another dimension to my personal vision of imaging. So how did it begin?

I started at the age of about 12 with an experimental box for kids called "Optikus and Photoman" (Francksche Verlagshandlung Stuttgart, Germany). The company still exists. Beside the optical experiments which led me to my second favourite interest astronomy, I could assemble a primitive shutterless camera. I made the exposures on photographic contact paper, which was sensitive enough to expose the material at daylight over about ten seconds at roughly f8 to f16. The positives were then produced by exposure from the paperback in contact with another sheet of contact paper. The creation of a picture from a blank sheet of paper was an experience which fascinated me for the next decades until I had my first computer. Since the beginning of graphic work on a computer, I have dreamed of closing my private darkroom - which all the dramas that happened there over the years - and of beginning creative work with clean fingers. I got this chance quicker than I thought. I have been working the digital way since 2003. My box-cameras morphed to Minolta SLR's and in 2003 to Canon EOS 350D and now 7D. I share them with my son. I have never been interested in showing my pictures to the public, but it is so easy to do now.

Johannes Christian Lenz

German Edition

 

Beschreibung

Am 19. Januar 1790 wird der Schlächter Geselle Johannes Christian Lenz in Berlin auf der Richtstätte des Königl. Hofgerichts, dem Rabenstein, weit vor dem Oranienburger Tor von unter gerädert und aufs Rad geflochten. 50 bis 60 Tausend Menschen sollen nach Augenzeugenberichten der Hinrichtung beigewohnt haben. Die größte bisher beobachtete Menschenmenge bei so einem Ereignis. Johannes Christion Lenz hatte um die Geisterstunde vom 13. auf den 14. Juni 1789 die schwer mit Geld beladene Stettiner Post auf ihrem Wege von Oranienburgs nach Berlin bei Birkenwerder beraubt und hierzu alle drei Begleiter ohne Gegenwehr ermorden können. Wie konnte das geschehen? - Leo Kaceem wiedererzählt und ergänzt die Geschichte auf der Basis damaliger Berichterstattung, analysiert die Gerichtsaussagen und rekonstruiert den Weg des Mörders für die acht Wochen, die zwischen Tat und Gefangennahme lagen. Hierzu schlüpft er in die Rolle des ungewöhnlichen Volksschreibers Tlantlaquatlapatli. Er enthüllt nebenbei auch eine mögliche Bedeutung dieses nahezu unaussprechlichen Pseudonyms und lässt im Abschlusskapitel den Volksschreiber mit seiner selbstgeschriebenen Vita zu Wort kommen.
