Damian Michał Heinisch - Erde, Feuer, Wind, Wasser, Kehrer Verlag, 2021, Heidelberg

 

Four cloth-bound volumes in slipcase. 278 color and 15 duotone illustrations, texts by Walter Heinisch, Sophie­-Charlotte Opitz, Kristian Skylstad in English, German, design by Andreas Rød Skilhagen.

"This four­-volume publication raises ques­tions about cultural and collective heritage and takes us on a visual journey through the history of Europe in the 20th and 21st centuries, marked by war, migration, and changes in political systems.
In each of the books – symbolically anchored in the four elements and the four seasons – the photographer focuses on various genera­tions of his family over the last 75 years: from his grandfather’s diary, which he wrote as a prisoner of war in Ukraine, to his family’s emi­gration from Poland to West Germany in the 1970s and the relatives they left behind, to Heinisch’s relationship with his widowed father in Germany and his own search for identity in Norway, his adopted home. Damian Heinisch holds an MA from the Folkwang School in Essen and teaches photography in Oslo." (from the publisher)

"It is precisely this very personal approach that allows us to derive general considerations concerning perception and memory. The project is neither easy to digest, nor simple to browse through; yet, it is the necessity for the viewer and reader to give the books time and attention that reveals the project's convincing and emotional power. The balance between effort and content has been achieved, with great success." (Ulrich Rüter)
