Autowäsche Kalender





„We come in peace and fight with humor.“

It is not possible to translate „autowäsche“ correctly into english. It fells as many other german words into the category of homonyms. Words with two different meanings – ‚wäsche‘ can stand for the actual ‚wash‘ as well as underwear. Which fits my subject perfectly well. Men in commercially available  undercloth combined with socks, shoes and nothing else. Preferably I don’t go for the archetypes or with the newest trends. I prefer to pick characters to suit the story which I want to tell. The cars were somewhere build in between the 1940’s till the 1980’s, either the former use, the nickname or just our association with them have let me pick. I shoot 39 images for three consecutively calendars so far. And I have to say it is probably one of the most awkward as well as funniest shoots  I ever got myself involved in.

I hop you enjoy 😉
