Yvonne Most: Von Café Pille bis Südbahnhof

The book is an expedition through the city of Sondershausen in Thüringen. There are no people to be seen and the photos show mostly details shrouded in warm, natural light.

The school, the café, the fashion boutique. If still in use or not, these are the places which played a role in Yvonne Most's memories of her childhood, and which she visited again with her camera in 2009 and 2010. They are private, dreamy, unagitated pictures, for sure also romanticizing – like memories usually are.

The title and cover have directly appealed to me, and after thumbing through the book I liked it even more. It reminds me of “Rodina” from Irina Ruppert. But it is more about the atmosphere than about the motives.
