EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph captured around 1910, titled "Boys on the roof of a house, Tunis" we are transported to the vibrant city of Tunis in Tunisia. The image, taken by renowned photographer Wilhelm von Gloeden, offers a unique glimpse into the lives of these young boys as they perch on the rooftop. The composition is strikingly beautiful, showcasing not only the architectural elements but also providing an aerial view of the entire city. As our eyes wander through this mesmerizing scene, we notice intricate details such as lamp posts and power lines that crisscross above bustling streets below. The boys themselves become central figures in this snapshot. Their youthful energy is palpable as they sit comfortably against each other amidst a backdrop of decorative building sections and structures. Their carefree expressions hint at their innocence while offering a sense of camaraderie. This photograph serves as both a portrait and an object frozen in time—a testament to Gloeden's skillful eye for capturing moments that transcend generations. It invites us to reflect upon urban life during this era while simultaneously evoking curiosity about these adolescents' stories. As viewers, we find ourselves immersed in their world—curious about what lies beyond those rooftops and captivated by the bird's-eye perspective that allows us to see beyond what meets the eye at ground level. Gloeden's masterful use of light and shadow adds depth to every corner of this print, making it impossible not to be drawn into its allure. This timeless piece reminds us that even within seemingly ordinary scenes lie extraordinary tales waiting to be discovered.
