Chancellor Otto von Bismarck founded the German Empire in 1871, and is one of the most monumentalized statesmen in European history- countless statues, streets, and public buildings bear his name. His avocation of iron and blood over speechesMoreChancellor Otto von Bismarck founded the German Empire in 1871, and is one of the most monumentalized statesmen in European history- countless statues, streets, and public buildings bear his name.

His avocation of iron and blood over speeches and majority votes is about as famous a historical statement of purpose as one could find. Bismarck, North Dakota is a city in the northern hinterland of the United States- cunning 1870s settlers renamed it after the Chancellor in order to attract wealthy investors.

The myths surrounding Otto von Bismarck have captivated photographer Dirk Reinartz for quite some time now, and in 1991 he published a photographic inventory of Bismarck statues in Germany. On his numerous trips through the US, Reinartz frequently noticed the name Bismarck, far north, featured in television weather forecasts. The centennial of Bismarcks death served as the occasion for his visiting and photographing the town, accompanied by author Wolfram Runkel.

What results is a particularly European view of North Dakotas capital, a German answer to the Coen Brothers Fargo.
