The Light That Shines on Germany

Eliot Hess


Family and friends ask me why I travel as much as I do. There is a simple answer to this question: to see the world while I can. I love to photograph the unexpected. I love showing others that the world is filled with wonderful surprises that bring us all together in peace and harmony. I never expected that Berlin, Nuremberg, Munich and the Bavarian countryside and their residents would be so welcoming.

Given Germany’s turbulent and dark history, one would perhaps expect a different experience, but as we all know, we must overlook the destruction caused by a few, and cherish the serene greatness built by the multitudes of Germans who love their country.
