Calin Kruse – You scared the shit out of me, so I'm leaving

Erotic fairs are probably the only events where all social classes and ages are gathered in the same place.

The visitors – exactly from the hick town where all the pictures were shot – brim over with bigotry. Because on one hand there is the hypocritical tolerance and openness at night, the meat market – and the gazes! – under the cover of eroticism. On the other hand the smooth smugness reveals in the daytime – lived family idyll and dominical church going included.

It is all about schizo provincialism. The abandon and unleashing of the bourgeois which seem enormous at first, in closer inspection keeps exactly within the defined limits. Because in this loud, piercing, adrenalized carnival of drives, the excess is planned. Like that everything is in best order. In the garden plot, on the parking lane, in the frontyard – and in fact also on the erotic fair.

More on Calin Kruse

A photozine about moments. Not about the moment itself, but about being part of it.

This was one of the strangest shooting I ever had.

After "Schmetterling" and "Wunderland", this is the last part of Calin Kruse's trilogy. Same personage, different story.

"A vertiginous rush of adrenalin, thrill and constructed chaos." (Kathrine Oktober Matthews. GUP Magazine).

"I don’t really want to know whether the characters read beatniks, nihilists, right-wing journalists, liberal gibberish or SF writers."

TIER ('Animal') deals with the animalic side of humans, and with the human side of animals.
