Family History

My wife Barbara F., professional photographer, had the job to make portraits for a family. This family was kind enough to give permission, to feature some of the photos on my website. My wife also made a book from this session, because the photos are very stylish following a duo-tone concept. The book-cover photo is a metaphor of family history, climbing upstairs: from grandfathers brown suitcase to mother’s silvery high heels

We’ve been motivated to understand more of the topic “FAMILY HISTORY” after enjoying two great movies, just featured in Germany:
1) “ALMANYA – Willkommen in Deutschland” – Cinemaxx movie
2) “Liebeskuss am Bosporus” – TV film, ZDF channel, on Monday, April 11th, 20.15

backside of the book:

  2. related:
    the history of my wife’s family, back to 1350 and to a witchcraft trial 1600 vs. her ancestor Dorothea Becker during the times of INQUISITION by Catholic Church …
    a witchcraft trial
    One of my wife’s ancestors was accused in a witchcraft trial – but lawyers saved her life. Her name: Dorothea_Becker, born 1536 | gone 1609. She was accused by the catholic church to be a witch, death sentence (by fire); but lawyers from the university of Muenster fought for her and saved her life versus the trials of “Inquisition“.
