Techno Years 91-97 | Zeitmaschine

As a “house photographer” of the techno magazine Frontpage he was always very close and not just a chronicler of the early Techno years, but rather an integral part of the music scene and party culture. In his archive of 20,000 analog photos, he has a unique record of the development of early techno scene from 1991 – 1997.
His photographs from 20 years of Techno history thus trace the ethnography of this former subculture. His Facebook page „Facebook Zeitmaschine” has more than 7,000 fans and is growing steadily.

Apart from the current retro trend, there are many people that can be seen in the photos, that have no pictures from that time otherwise. My photos are a kind of “visualized confirmation  of existence“. The “I was there” effect sets in and the children or grandchildren can see what the “oldies”  were up to. Nostalgia doesn’t come up, rather a kind of recognition it’s the same with childhood pictures, where you know exactly what color the wallpaper had or which toy did what. We have definitely lived through an important and irretrievable time and I do not want to miss a minute. It was our party and I’m happy about every comment on our digital class reunion on Zeitmaschine.

Thus, Zeitmaschine is a chronicle of this time, showcasing people bringing this time to life, exhibiting the fashion, the lifestyle and the artists. The complete different way of presentation compared to the new social networks makes it so special, because the focus is on the presentation of subculture and art without having the background of permanent availability and accessibility and the awareness that the image will be viewable in the worldwide web the very next day
