DREI - THEM AND ME
There once was a man and a woman. They were madly in love, spending every minute together, sharing the same ideas and dreams. But one day the other man came. Much younger, much prettier, much cuter. The woman than called herself mother and namend her lover and man father. The woman now shared every minute of her time with the young man. She feeded him, gave him her breasts to drink and her body to keep him warm. The man than felt like an outcast and an outsider. They where not more SHE and HE, they were now THEM and HE. But because the man was a photographer by profession, he did what he could best: take photos. He was always around the woman and the younger man. He was watching every breath they took, every move they made, every step they took, every word they said, every game they played. DREI is the German word for "three".
