I took this photo a year ago while I was living in Redlands, a small town in Southern California. The whole day was very surreal – a couple friends and I drove deep into the desert to visit Salvation Mountain, an enormous handmade shrine in the middle of nowhere. When the sun began to set we drove home down a straight, flat road; the kind that wavers on the horizon like a hallucination no matter how long you’ve been driving. I was in the back seat fiddling with my camera when I looked up and saw smoke billowing from the side of the road. We slowed, turned our heads in unison, and drove on silently. We couldn’t tell what had happened, but for me this photo (made with a 35mm Canon Rebel Ti) retains the strange tension of that moment.

The picture was taken in 1996 at the crack of dawn during a millitary exercise. back in the days there has been a general conscription in germany. you could decide either to do social or millitary service. as i was a naiv young man looking for exitement, i have choosen the army service. at this time i was not interestet in photographie at all. i just took some random shots for the photo album. some months ago i found the negativs, scanned them and was quite surprised by the atmosphere.

from my todays perspective i see young men, still kids, playing war, exercising to kill. to imagine and empathise what war actually means to peoole is gross. FUCK ALL governments and filthy old men, that are sending there young men to war, just to make the next move on the global chessboard of economics and power!

I like to listen to music when I take pictures . That day, I was walking around Bordeaux in France with the Archive’s album ” You All Look The Same To Me” in the ears when I came face to face with this man. It was fun to see all these portraits of other people he was doing in his image. This made me think immediately on the cover of the Archive’s album and I took the picture.Photography is for me like a pannini image collection .I appreciate the dualities : voyeurism / curiosity ; reality / dreams and i try to show it in my photography.
