"Fair to cloudy" is a prognostication regularly made on the evening weather report, promising everything and nothing. Homeland-what is it, and how do you recognize or identify it? Three young photographers travel across the country searching for what is "typically German," something that is both fascinating and disconcerting to them. On their journey from Husum to Donaueschingen they take a serene and self-ironic look at life in the provinces, with all of its peculiarities and unquestioned traditions, which puts a smile on everyone's face. This raises the question of whether there might be something of all this in us, too. These amusing photos are accompanied by a foreword by Frank Goosen, who, with no less wit, traces German lives and superficialities in an historical survey from the 1960s to the present day.
DAVID CARREÑO HANSEN (*1978, Madrid), SVEN STOLZENWALD (*1986, Neuss), and CHRISTIAN A. WERNER (*1980, Weimar) met at the Hochschule Hannover, where they were all studying documentary photography. Heiter bis wolkig is their collaborative final exam project. Besides working as freelance photographers, all of them are busy with (social) documentary photography projects. The author FRANK GOOSEN (*1966, Bochum) travels on the lecture circuit all over Germany, generally by train.
