Der weiße Hopfengarten

Winter Hops

##
High-contrast, abstract black-and-white photographs by Renate von Mangoldt illustrate a three-part poem cycle by Walter Höllerer about hop gardens in winter. “White is the garden / empty the poles / cleared / the season / made visible / the skeleton / before the white / ceiling.” The frames form a graphic pattern, “a curiosity of lines” and a “grey hatch work / over the snow”.
