[Photographer and artist, b. 1935, Niemegk, Germany, lives in Berlin.]

 A snapshot steals life that it cannot return. A long exposure gives a form that never existed. 
 White is the color of decomposition. White is also no color. White is nothing. In photography, the paper is white, next comes the light, which is also white, then the shadow is created, the apparition.
