In memory of a friend.

My friend Martin Müller-Römheld passed away last Sunday. We had recently been discussing a list of books that had made an impression on our lives. On Martin’s list was the book “Steppenwolf” by the Swiss German author Hermann Hesse. I have selected a passage from the book that I believe pays homage to the man and his life. The accompanying series of photographs I shot recently complement the text perfectly.

“My resolve to die was not the whim of an hour. It was the ripe, sound fruit that had slowly grown to full size, lightly rocked by the winds of fate whose next breath would bring it to the ground. ”

Rest in peace my friend.
