Trachten


TRACHTEN is a series of seven medium-format photo portraits shot by Natalie Rose Dodd and styled by Jules Rumpf, bringing together traditional German attire with fetish accessories best known from Berlin’s unique nightlife. The project entwines these two seemingly disparate worlds, merged in the German capital, and explores themes of tradition, history, identity, sexuality, and time. The TRACHTEN accessories were created by the stylist using hand-embroidered textiles that have been in her family’s possession for several generations. TRACHTEN reimagines German attire; a mode of dress that suits the radical changes which have happened over time in this country.
