Light is dream We can see and catch, Bend it to our will. Impossible to hold Between our hands It is a prayer That lifts us out of night. By example, As if to say we too Can be a light, Help someone step up Out of darkness Into day.
Henri Cartier-Bresson - Hamburg. Winter 1952-1953. Skyscraper originally built for the British occupation forces who, in 1947, planned for a short while to make Hamburg the capital of the British zone in Germany. After this plan had been abandoned, the "Grindelberg housing project" has been taken over by the Germans and is now nearly finished.
