Germany, that great country of sausages, controversial History, Berghain, real castles and rough language. Where people are doing well but don’t celebrate it; where being superior not only to other beings, but to entire countries, is a custom. Where surnames such as Düsediekerbäumer actually exist. The country of effectiveness. What would become of Europe without Germany.
Germany is also the country master of efficiency; have a look at photographer Samuel Henne‘s work. Using individual objects, this German creates with them a new thing and achieve what sounds rather difficult; functionality on an image. Utility, even. Something that emanates more of a purpose than you on a Sunday. Henne doesn’t seem to find beauty merely in the aesthetic, but he seems to pursue justification, probably due to his long genetic inheritance. Simply Wünderbar.
