Axel Hoedt:Once A Year

The Swabian-Alemannic carnival, known as Fasnacht, Fastnacht or Fasnet, is a custom in south west Germany when the cold and grim spirits of winter are symbolically hunted down and expelled. Every year around January and February processions of people make their way through the streets of Endingen, Sachsenheim, Kissleg, Singen, Wilfingen and Triberg dressed up lavishly as demons, witches, earthly spirits and fearful animals to enact this scene of symbolic expulsion. Photographer Axel Hoedt captured the embellished disguises of the revellers in a mixture of still life, polaroid snapshots and classical studio shots. The earnest poses away from the carnival revelry and established clichés remind the viewer of what a carnival used to be, ample amounts of merrymaking laced with sinister undertones.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

The U.S. government sent some talented photographers to capture America during the 30s. Learn more about them and their iconic images that brought the Dust Bowl home to everyone. View the photos: http://to.pbs.org/QN2oIT
