    Default A photographic record of life in East Germany

    Seems two men found 60,000 photos there dad had taken and meticulously organized of life in East Germany. Great article at Spiegel and at the end of the article they have a link to 39 photos of his to see. Very cool stuff.

    Quote: Manfred Beier had made a chronological list of every photo, complete with an archival numbering system. The notes detailed exactly how each picture came to be -- the day, hour, and minute it was taken; the camera, aperture, and shutter speed used to take it; and the exact location of its subject.
    “I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost - that is important.” Jacques-Henri Lartigue
