About the Work

The pop concert taking place in Hitler's stadium was held for young Germans and GIs. I had intended to photograph a deserted stadium - it is almost never used - and I could hardly believe my eyes or ears when I turned up in Nuremberg one day in September 1982 to see massed blue jeans and to hear heavy metal.
