Man You Factor (The Manufacturing)

This image is from the first of a three part photographic series that imparts the (1) manufacturing of 'the' ubiquitous male in the form of an transcendent 'idyllic' quasi-ideal statue in Germany.

In August (2010), during a holiday in Berlin, I began a project that was to be an outtake from an impression I first had of the Federal Republic of Germany as a whole, stemming from my first time(s) in Germany, up to the the summer of 2010, and coupling this with the history I was taught in school as a kid, along with documentaries I had seen of the first and second world wars. Being part German by heritage, I also thought of my grandmother and her archaic views about race and of me as her grandson.
