World War Memorial in Laufenburg, Germany

As a John Doe I’m facing objects like the following – a world war memorial with exaggerated pathos – with mixed feelings. But the photographer inside me is always excited.

Because of this pathos I don’t feel obliged to produce “real” or documentary images; quite the contrary I feel free to interprete these monuments in my way. Unusual perspectives, narrow crops and excessive RAW-processing give me a lot of space to play with.

The following two pictures are from Laufenburg, Germany, a small town with a picturesque and historic centre, at the border to Switzerland. The memorial is a remembrance of the townsmen killed in World War I and II.
