Cafe Herbst or a trip to the Amazon

Edgar Herbst
The life story of the confectioner's son, Edgar Herbst, a recordist and fantasist, is strongly connected to his work. He photographs passionately, as a profession and vocation, writes, collects, is often portrayed by others and is adored by women and his contemporaries. In this book, starting in the late post-war period in Germany, we follow the social decadence and exuberance to the turn of the millennium, ending up in the garish and colourful oversaturation of the present. Cafe Herbst symbolizes the imagination of the eternal home with the Amazon as a place of longing. This is glamour for the soul!
