"The possible beauty of a white lie."


Thomas Steinert

Garage, 1986, print...

The other nite, late into the evening, a younger gentleman and I were discussing the difference between authenticity, make believe, and flat out delusions. The borders, and the intersection of "our truths." The thoughts we believe/feel, that we are capable of manifesting, and those that we will never achieve due to our inability to dream.

The possible beauty of a white lie.

The intoxicating energy of building your own truths from ground up. fake columns and all.

Thomas Steinert's photograph from 1986, titled, "Garage" pretty much sums up the thoughts and ideas of that conversation of the other nite with the younger gentleman. Take a look at Steinert's photographs that chronicle Germany before communism crumbled. Or just meet me in the garage.
