I look at these pictures. Old photographs, taken
in the late sixties in Hamburg and Stockholm.
They bring back memories of kinship, fearfulness,
undisguised curiosity and our solidarity.
Photography was rarely the main issue.
What counted then was meeting people
and exploring different realities.
The same things still count.
Now I see the pictures from a changed
perspective. But they link together what
was then with what is now.
My questions of then are my questions of now.
I recognize them, though the answers no
longer carry the same weight.
So I continue to ask my questions.
Be wary of:
Nicely formulated principles and truths.
Useless feelings of guilt and sins
of the past or while we're at it, a
photography resembling pretty adjectives.
On the other hand, I like private
diaries and family albums.
