photography, writing, fine art... stuff ... other stuff ...


These images are all of the Brunnen in Johannisplatz, behind the Postgalerie. I liked the idealised figure, about twice life-size. The woman is shown in a 'serving' role ... bearing two water jugs, which, when the fountain is filled with water for the summer months, spout water (the faces in the stone surround also spout water).

I liked the juxtaposition of this idealised figure with the real people who passed by the Brunnen, and, as the Postgalerie, now a shopping mall, contains a number of cafes ... with outside seating for warmer weather ... I also liked the juxtaposition of this idealised serving girl with the real women serving in the nearby cafes.

These images were all made with a 6x9 Zeiss Ikon Nettar. The Nettar was a budget version of the Ikonta series of folding cameras.
