Munich: please don’t forget me
Is this about a flight of fancy, a wish that we should not be forgotten? A fine example of street-art? Or is this a plea, both poignant and provocative? One can see where someone had tried to remove at least one butterfly and break up pieces where the girl’s dress lies. This photo shows that whatever the artist’s (or the cleaner’s) intentions were, the work remains in our minds, and there, the image cannot be destroyed.
This is the outward-facing wall at the southwest corner of Isartalstrasse and Kapuzinerstrasse in Munich’s Isarvorstadt-Ludwigsvorstadt.
I made the photo on 12 March 2011 with the Canon EOS450D, 50mm/1.4 prime, and the following settings: 1/320s, f/4, ISO100, 80mm full-frame equivalent. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-MN.
