This series is devoted to the generation of transition thirty years after reunification.
The first picture was taken in 2008, the last in 2019.
Driven by the ongoing change, but nonetheless still noticeable division of the city, it is important to me to give a face to the generation of the Wendekinder (children of German reunification). With my photographs, I want to capture the young women and men who were born into this special time, and who are therefore a part of the writing of this particular history. They are young people who were raised during or after the reunification. For their parents, the Wall was a matter of fact. For them, the Wall is no longer conceivable.
With their help, this body of work has become a social portrait of young women and men on the threshold of adulthood. Caught by the political transformation of Berlin, they have been influenced and shaped by it as much as they have influenced and shaped it.
