    About The Work

    The process of discovery that Frank Darius records with his camera is an admiring, often astonishing one. Without capturing what he has seen or plucking something from the whole, he is satisfied with having touched it. Thus his stories grow forth as flowering moments in the here and now. This limited edition photograph of a romantic wood in a driving snow is beautifully photographed with a highly atmospheric touch. Yet this is a deliberately selected, extraordinarily deceptive idyll. In actuality, the motif is Berlin’s Teufelsberg, with its US military SIGNIT station. During the Cold War, the CIA spied upon East Berlin from the top of this rubble heap in West Berlin. Symbolically buried beneath the rubble of four hundred thousand buildings bombed during World War II lies the shell of the German school of military technology, designed by Albert Speer as part of the new international capital of Germania—a building that had proved to be indestructible.
