Collier Schorr; Weekend Leave

on December 5, 2011

Collier Schorr directs a skewed vision of German military life in “Forests and Fields”. A lush forest bed, covered in moss and pine cones is the perfect place for reflection. A young man– perhaps American–with his back to the camera gazes towards history or away from it, depending on where one’s melancholia lies. Using a 4 x 5 press camera without a tripod, Schorr captures the fleeting expressions of a troupe of young men, some newly conscripted into the German Bundeswehr (army), others who await their destiny with timeless repose.
