Making History

Archives are important places of memory. In this series from 2013 and 2014 people working in 24 archives have been photographed in the context of typical working situations, e.g. in a sports archive, city and state archives, archives of the catholic and protestant church and the company archive of Porsche and Celesio. Because archivists must make decisions regularly what should be kept and what should be destroyed, they are mostly responsible for the picture of the present future generations will have. The series has been photographed in analogue medium format.
