dieter schidor & ingrid caven in lothar lambert's Verbieten Verboten

i shot these photographs for lothar in berlin in 1987 or 88. We didnt know that dieter wasnt going to survive his hiv much longer. he knew. he played the smiths' the queen is dead a lot. lothar asked me to play ingrid's role. i declined because i knew dieter had his heart set on acting with ingrid. lothar preferred not to work with stars or even actors. i would have been ok then. its nice to see dieter look so happy even if he was acting. and me, i was happy to be giftwrapped for lothar's leading man the late stefan menche

  1. I cannot picture Dieter without a smile, and cannot remember this kind, intelligent, optimistic and gentle man with smiling myself.
