Hamburg December 1973

On the 24th of December (Christmas evening in Germany) I took my Rolleicord into town, just hours before the shops closed and shot a few photographs. Unusual at the time, they were mid format (6X6) slides or transparencies in color (Ektachrome film).
And I was influenced by the great Robert Frank, whose famost book "The Americans" - shot on a sabbatical trip across the USA in the early 50ies by this unusual sensitive Swiss photographer and filmmaker - I had just discovered. This made my eager to take pictures of people, trying to immitate his documentary stile.
