Germaine Krull was an adventurer from the beginning of the 20th century. First as a war correspondent, then as a photographer and hotel manager,
she went to Indochina in 1945.
The artist Heidi Specker relates, in the book, to her work.
Heidi Specker encounters Bangkok no differently than she does Berlin.
The image of the Far Eastern metropolis that Specker creates as a mental
but figurative map is also composed with the details of building façades and the sprinklings of plant nature in their stony pattern. Against the deserted image of the city, which only now and then, in a distant view, suggests cars and passers-by, stands the sculptural element of the enthroned Buddha,
as Germaine Krull found him 60 years ago in the temples of the country.
