Hannes Wallrafen

OF TIME AND THE TROPICS

The photographs of Hannes Wallrafen are like stories: images that he encounters in the world around him or that arise in is own imagination. Wallrafen prefers to work on thematic projects with a clear thread running through them. Previously he published 'Een Dagreis naar Macondo' (A day trip to Macondo), with photographs inspired by the stories of Gabriel García Márquez. For OF TIME AND THE TROPICS (2002) he went to Honduras in search of the memories of the people. Wallrafen was there confronted with a collective absence of cultural consciousness: books and historical photographic materials are hardly available, historical buildings have made way for new houses, municipal archives went up in smoke and old customs have been forgotten. With this photo project Wallrafen tried to bring this collective past to the surface in images which will also be recognisable for the Hondurans themselves.
