I’m always a little bit surprised how few German photographers explore what being German might mean. This is especially surprising in the light of both German history and what’s going on in the country (there’s a very large pool of immigrants, for example). In fact, there are probably more German photographers who went to the US taking photos of cowboys than artists turning their lenses towards their own country. And when the lens is turned that way, there are no people (one could argue that the Düsseldorf School is basically completely apolitical). So I was glad to find Marita Bullmann’s Es gibt immer was zu tun [There’s always something to do] (here) today. I’d like to see more like that.
