Sebald and Photography – a Video Interview

Sebald Video Interview2

Spain’s Taller de Escritura Fuentetaja recently posted a short (5:05) video excerpt from a longer interview with W.G. Sebald, in which he talks about the role of photographs in his books. The interview is in English with Spanish subtitles. Although uncredited, it is a segment of the June 23, 1998 Amsterdam interview with Michaël Zeeman. The full text of the interview can be found in W.G. Sebald: History, Memory, Trauma. edited by Scott Denham and Mark McCulloh.
(Thanks, Juan and Kim!)

I would also point to a worthwhile article over at Numéro Cinq by Patrick Madden called “Walking, Researching, Remembering: W. G. Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn as Essay.”

    The interview is from 1998, not 2008, of course. A transcript of the interview is available in the book ‘W.G. Sebald: History, Memory, Trauma’.
