Details

Hans-Jürgen Burkard, one of the great photojournalists of our time, has embarked on an extraordinary journey through Germany. A journey that takes the lyrics of German pop songs as associative matter for a photographic portrait of German sensitivities. German pop music, criticizing, harsh, but also affectionate and confident – what does it tell about a country, what emerges from it? Hans-Jürgen Burkard has translated lyrics like those of Königin von Kreuzberg by Prinz Pi or Hinterland by Casper into great pictures: free, off-the-wall, alarming, cheerful, mysterious – in any case fantastic. With a thick wad of lyrics print-outs on the passenger seat, he drove thousands of kilometres through the republic. Searching for moods and situations that matched the music. With essays by Silke Müller and Peter-Matthias Gaede.

Reviews

Stern.de open_in_new

"Denn Burkard fotografiert nicht einfach nur, er schafft es auch, mit seinen Bildern Emotionen zu übermitteln und viele Fragen aufzuwerfen. Manche Antworten darauf bieten Burkards Erinnerungen, aber manche lassen sich wohl nur auf eine Weise zusammenfassen: German Vielfalt. Wer hätte all diese Besonderheiten je in diesem Land vermutet?"
