Yes - it really is a shame many of the orginal slide are damaged. Doing some inquiry about photography in Vienna in the 1970s, I found an antiquarian who has a huge collection of original photography – including a huge collection of Polaroids. Over the years he bought the heir of some photographers after they died. According to him, it was very easy. Whenever he hears about a deceased photographer he sets contacts to surviving dependets – the same concept he conducts to buy rare old books. The gentleman reported he found a big box in the photographer’s estate just covering this one single pictorial – it was a book he planned. He said, there were at least 1000 slides covering the event. (Good old Ektachrome, 36 photos on each film, 10 films per shooting, three different shootings – the amount seems to be realistic) But most transparencies were mildewed, damaged by scratches and water spotting.
The antiquarian owns a couple of cases of originals of other photographers as well. There also are other kinds of „photo novels” featuring model Sylvia Groess. Unfortunately none of them covers a similar adventure in tropical conditions...
On the other hand, to set the story somewhere in the more northern hemisphere covering all four season actually makes the whole adventure even more daring. If you think of the model running around in the wilderness nude to pose for the photographer’s requirements, doing it in the mud of late fall and also in winter, in snow, really is a story on its own. If it is true what I heard while doing my invquiry on this event, each and every shooting lastet for at least five or six hours. The photographer went with the model to his locations. It is reported, she undressed to hide her belongings somewhere at a significant spot. It is said, the photographer acted this way, because he did not work with an assistant to script the scenes. To guarantee a correct story line he wanted the girl to stay as she has been in the scene before. (Including the dirt she collected with time). It sounds a bit inticately, but it seems the photographer was an elderly man and a paper pusher as well. It also might have been his fetish to have the nude girl doing this kind of stuff the way he wanted it.
Anyway, to imagine the situation in February 1978, chilly, a lot of mud everywhere and some areas still offering snow, the shooting of the adventure must have been an adventure as well. The areas they went can’t be considered as public areas, but chances were still there to meet a hiker or a huntsman any time. As far as I know, it happened. Not to mention situations in summer and early autumn the year before. Nostitsch took Sylvia in some real wilderness full of wild blackberry and other thorny plants. A couple of pictures are proof for the willigness of the model concerning the circumstances of this job.
