images may be added again at some stage - too many images "stolen" and used uncredited without any notice. Will rethink the whole project - password protected access may be an option, paid subscribing another or taking it completly offline also thinkable. But still undecided...

I remember discovering this work in a bookshop and without reading the title I stumbled into the pictures and put it immediately away. Over the next months returning to the shop I always had to pull it out again and look at it, there is a fascination to look at it and at the same time you want to get away the pictures in your head - but you can't. In the end I bought it two years later - up to now the picture of the boy is one of the saddest, most peaceful and strongest impression of a photo on me.

Hardcover, with a text by Jean Cocteau.
