I almost forgot to mention my online exhibition
LA FRONTERA: Artists along the US Mexican Border.
I photographed over 150 artists along the entire 2000 miles long US Mexican border in order to put a spotlight on the cultural activities in a region normally reported on by the international media with the sole focus on violent crime.
The project is ongoing.
On view at The FORWARD THINKING MUSEUM !!
Here some new "visuelle sounds" which I have "recorded" during my trip through the northern Kivu Province in Congo last week. I recommend this soundtrack while you are browsing the images.
I did this trip on assigment for the German NGO Welthungerhilfe e.V. . I went back to Congo after seven years and the country is still beautyfull, but the conditions to live there are still worst. In this way I am always hovering between euphoria and depression. Also every evening the question pops up: is humanitarian help the right way to help a country like this? Or is it just a new way of colonization? At the same time I found wonderfull projects, which are running under the help of Welthungerhilfe e.V. and the people are very thankfull for this help ...
