Angelus Novus

His face is turned toward thae past. Where we perceive a chain of events, the Angel sees one single catastrophe which keeps piling wreckage upon wreckage and hurls it in front of his feet. (W. Benjamin, Theses on Philosophy of History, 1942)

Angelus Novus (Nachleben der Antike) is an ongoing series about the casual and surprising relationship between past and present and the way photography can make time distances explode and collide
