Personal reflections on different aspects of the life, work and influence of WG Sebald by those who knew him, ten years after his death.
WG "Max" Sebald's literary career was at its height when he died in a car crash in December 2001, shortly after the publication of his masterpiece Austerlitz.
WG Sebald was fascinated by photographs.
He found in them an essential, evocative counterpoint to his elegiac narratives.
His books are strewn with them - enigmatic black-and-white captionless photographs.
Never simply illustrative, these images are at once embedded in the prose while remaining disconnected, puzzling and digressive, asking questions and telling their own stories.
