Thirty years ago, I left my first country to come to live in France. Once or twice a year I return to Germany, to Bavaria or somewhere else in the country. The places of my childhood and adolescence change, or are altered a little, the links with my family and friends expand at times then tighten again. The book D’Allemagne, edited in 2003, already testified to this double belonging, showing intimacy and estrangement at the same time. Every time I go back, I photograph an ordinary existence which is no longer mine: places, houses, landscapes, animals, which I record without a fixed idea or a precise project. Over the years, in these shifts between familiarity and distance, a very particular relation to places, people and passing time has gradually accumulated. With Haus Hof Land, I thought of a children’s game, Stadt Land Fluss (city country river), and I adopted its idea by proposing a free and incomplete alphabet primer: the words are replaced by photographs, assembling and echoing each other in an infinite variety of possible readings.
