I worked for Anselm Kiefer in 1999. We worked ten hour days beginning promptly at 7 a.m. I worked in the studio next to his mainly on his books. We worked side by side on his Women of Antiquity series and he really worked with you. There wasn't much talk of art although he did recommend shows to see. You weren't an equal and he would test your toughness and how you problem solved. It was all very hard work and if you've ever been a mason that is close to how hard it was. It was a moving experience being surrounded by such rich work and being involved in it's creation. I really like the pictures I took as they capture some of this. He doesn't know I took them (sorry) but during lunch or after work when he wasn't around I took advantage. How could I resist. This is the first time showing them like this other than for my students. There have been photos taken by others during open studios after my time there but these are as the space was when we worked.
