Mutterland
The photographer, himself a so-called Post-Wende child, documents in this ongoing work intimate and monochrome his inner connection to the provincial place in the East in which he grew up for a time.
A quiet reflection on injustice and pain, betrayed hopes and false promises in the lost landscapes, dying regions and people of the former DDR. 
A confrontation with the own family history and an inevitable deep loss. 
Generations in search of identity, shaped by a country of origin that exists no longer. Tearing dissonances, recurring existential fear.
A categorization of contemporary history on its own life, the present between two worlds and the question of what lives would have been possible.
