About the book:
Of all the motives that move people in their innermost being and make them act, there is hardly one that does not have its origin in collecting. By accumulating and presenting things of the most varied kinds, people gain orientation and not only live out their passion, but also their vanity and their drive for power.
In the carefully curated and brightly coloured still lives of her book “Herr der Dinge (Master of things)” photographer Caroline Heinecke opposes the trend of collecting for capital or personal gain, to focus the attention on collections of supposedly ordinary or useless objects.
