"The first pictures arose sporadically out of being together", writes the photographer Andreas Mader in Die Tage - Das Leben. Over time, he portrayed his friends more consciously. "I watched them find each other and separate, how they had children, how they grew up, how they were alone and with others, how they got older and took their hand so they would not get lost on the way. [..] Some of the friends moved to other cities and countries, they saw each other less often'', reports Mader, "and I kept shooting". The people were the same, but life became visible against a constantly changing background.
Mader's intimate portraits of his close friends chronicle the passing of time, life's ups and downs, but also its constants.
