How do rock'n'roll photography and art actually fit together? You seem to operate in two completely different worlds. Do you sometimes feel like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? No, because there is no conflict. In fact, it's a solid relationship, like that between egg whites and yolks. I've done all kinds of things in my life. I've built roads, bridges, houses, and I was even a gravedigger once. And I've always taken pictures while doing it. These days, when I travel from one rock festival to the next, I automatically get around a lot. I take photos everywhere. But I don't get up in the morning with the thought of developing any concepts that day. That's not how it works. The picture below, for example, was taken one afternoon in Los Angeles. In the evening I had a fixed appointment with the New York band "A Place To Bury Strangers". Before that, I was able to do other things. On previous L.A. visits I had taken a few snapshots at this location, and later in Germany I came up with the idea for a picture of people taking pictures of the Hollywood Sign. Although the pictures are millions of times on the Internet, they do not show the act of taking the picture. I was now interested in how the pictures are actually created. I wanted to tell a story. Hollywood stands for fiction, and the tourists who photograph the Hollywood Sign every day want to become part of the dream factory and all the stories they grew up with for a brief moment.
