“Recently I travelled to Germany with my husband to visit his family. I was excited about the prospect – not only to meet up with his lovely extended mob again, spread from the north to the south – but being able to take photos there again. Last time (2010) I took a domestic Lumix. This time the ‘documentation’ was completed on my iPhone 4 with Instagram as filter, and a silicon C-90 cover! The resulting photo ‘essay’ – all 178 of them – made me happy. Germany is a place that has a strange relationship with landscape and light – the further north you go, the more grim and oppressive; the further south, more liberated, sunny and and joyful. (Also reflected in the people and attitudes!) It is a beautiful place equally fraught with history and ‘the future’. My images represent a ‘present’ that I was grateful to be a part of” – Megan Spencer.
