The East (1998)

The East is a series the artist made while studying in Leipzig. The photographs are from the outskirts of the city, areas where the urban features are less visible. The pictures focus on the ordinary and almost anonymous in these places. The concentration on such areas was also an attempt to avoid the typical “East German” that were much more visible in the center of Leipzig in 1998. The pictures could therefore as likely have been captured in the West.
