Sandler back 05 Foto TobiasHuebel web3

For his series back, Norman Sandler produced drawn copies of the reverse sides of photo prints. In the age of digital photography, the small-format photo prints appear anachronistic. They evoke memories of waiting for the desired holiday pictures or snapshots from the last school trip. The numerical marking of the photos on the back seems to become very central in Sandler's drawings. Although it betrays the month and year the prints were made (in this case August 1998) and the film-negative number, what may be seen on the front of the photo remains uncertain.
