Semper virilis: In connection with the ancestors

  • Photographer
    Martin Dr. Dr. Hoerning

The death of my father at the end of 2020... Visits to places of childhood, the search for common roots. What connected me to the men before me? What connects my son with me? The joy of movement, training, manual labor - that has connected five generations of men.
This is shown in the photos of the series "Memories": Projections of old photos on the walls and trees of childhood places and prints on paper form the frame for the self-portraits, with me as the viewfinder and interpreteur of the old stories.
