Klaus der Geiger by bzed Klaus der Geiger by bzed
Unusual portrait of an unusal musician - Klaus der Geiger.
Lott Festival 2004

The cult figure of Cologne's street musicians still shows us, that critical amusement is still possible. His texts are nothing for the ears of good citizens and quite nothing for the authority. He opens his mouth desire-fully and hilariously (and barefoot) to important themes of our time, although he sometimes 'burned' himself.... In addition to that the former pupil of Kagel- and Stockhausen works wildly, unorthodox and virtuos on his violin.


update: finally a good scan :boogie:

Sounds like a person who speaks my own heart.
Beautiful photography, and I'm a sucker for black and white at that. I love the perspective and focusing, although the hands and violins have more detail, I still see his face. It's like the two are complimentary colours -- they stand each other out.
Beautiful :)
