Random Images: Charles Wilp

Here’s another contribution by Moko. Below is a photo taken for a political campaign of Rudolf Werner in 1972. This stark composition appears to be a popular motif in postwar Germany. The contrast between the innocent and vulnerable children against the ominous gas masks representative of industrial war-craft is compelling. I recall a similar image in the film Peppermint-Frieden (1983). This photo originally appeared in the German publication Spiegel.
