LAKE UNDER ATTACK
The ciphers of the picture of a disaster

The videos of the terrorist attacks in the USA, into which repeats special transmissions of the TV stations endlessly, hang in my heading. The perception takes disasters films from the nightmare factory Hollywood as reference („as in the cinema"). The TV pictures fulfill an almost pornographically need after maximal clearness. The break between before it and afterwards, betweegn normality and state of emergency, is held.

So far above all photos documented the fright of a disasters or a war vissually. The photos are smeared, excited and at the same time calm. They do not show everything, but they let some suspect. The photos work authentically. The disaster takes place as conception in the heading.

„U. S. under Attack": That is the headline „Chicago Tribune" in the „Special extra" from 11 September 2001. „Lake under Attack", called my photo series. It is a dispute withe the ciphers of pictures of a disaster. I photographed the series of „Lake under Attack" in rain weather on a ship on the Urnersee. This part of the Vierwaldstaettersee is situated in the middle in the heart of Switzerland. I made the receptions 14 September 2001; Camera „Hasselblad XPan", on „Fujicolor Superia 200".
