In the course of study everyone has to do a student research project. My task was to create a photo series about the topic „the others“:
I knew many old people, because my parents live in a neighborhood where pretty much everybody is between seventy and eighty years old. I thought it would be really interesting to show another generation, which lives for old values, e.g. the woman, who is the mistress of her kitchen and cooked for her husband every day. I decided to photograph my grandma, my two grandfathers and two men of my parent’s neighborhood. The result was an analog photo series of five people that I had taken with my Mamiya Rb67. I also developed the photo prints in our photo laboratory.
