„Pictures in the dark I see“ is what Anita Hegerland sang in 1985 accompanied by Mike Oldfield at the guitar. A long time ago I shot a photo in the darkness of my living room in a moment when suddenly a ray of light fell through the blinds on a car shaped glass sculpture on the shelf.
As the driver could bring the original vehicle, a Mercedes 500K from 1934,up to a maximum speed of 100 mph (or 160 km/h) the miniature made me think of the song „Fast Car“ by Tracy Chapman, back in 1988. I felt that the sombre mood of the video was matching almost perfetctly the dark colours of my picture.
