The 'Darkside' - I find it fascinating that as we live in an increasingly digitised, robotic, sanitised and supposedly rational world the popularity of the 'Darkside' in mainstream culture has never waned - it's increasing if anything. I have my theories but there isn't space here to explore that. All manner of irrational ideas are bomb-proof box office, TV and book-shop successes. Which is odd in some ways - the original Stoker 'Dracula' was a remarkably modern book for its time. If you haven't read it - it's superb - genuinely terrifying in places.

I'm asumming the trees have grown in an old grave yard, good shot.
That´s right, P. It is one of the old Jewish graveyards in East Berlin. Shot it from the livingrooms balcony of a friends apartment in the district Prenzlauer Berg. I am angry today that I had the Lubitel 166 with me and not my Rolleiflex. Image is therefore not really sharp and you see on the top right corner, there is a light incident. Two weeks after that shot my friend moved to a different apartment and I was back in Bremen, where I lived at that time.

From a series shot for a collaborative exhibition with a fine-art photographer friend inspired by Goya's 'Los caprichos,' - specifically - in this case - No.43 - 'el sueno de la razon produce monstrous,' - the sleep of reason produces monsters. Owls have a folklore connection to witches in Spanish speaking cultures. They feature in the original etching.
