Click to preview GÄRTNERS` VOYAGE photo book

In summer 2008, Lothar Gärtner and his wife Elke decided to dare a big voyage – most probably their last one. They had been traveling Europe on caravan all of their joint lives. Two years before, Elke had come down with Alzheimer's disease. Lothar wished to care for her in their common house as long as possible and accompany her on her way.
In March 2008 Sibylle Fendt started to take photographs of Lothar and Elke in their home.
In August and September 2008 she accompanied them on their last voyage to Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Saint Petersburg and back home.

The pictures that emerged from this are no travel documents. They are symbols for a journey into unknown terrain.

In February 2009, Elke died completely unexpectedly as a result of a heavy fall.
