Saint Afra is a boarding school for highly gifted students. They reside in a kind of village next to the school. Whenn I visited the place it felt unreal. Ocassionally someone shouted a name or laughed but apart from that it was silent and empty. It was one of the last summer days, the sun stood high and casted strange shadows through the trees. The modern characteristics of the buildings themselves made the surreal feeling all the more present. I tried to show that effect in the photographs.
