Hölderlin’s Places: Photographs of Barbara Klemm

Only few poets have shaped present-day language, thought, and sensibility as did Friedrich Hölderlin (1770–1843). On the occasion of his 250th birthday, renowned photographer Barbara Klemm (*1939) visited the places of his life which had an impact on his poetry. Camera in hand, she traced the perspectives his verses evoke: from the Neckar valley to Greece, from Tübingen to Bordeaux, always into the open Hölderlin strove for. In this very personal book, Klemm’s sensitive photographs encounter Hölderlin’s words and their mutual views unfold a captivating dialogue, in which images and poems gently merge.
