"Beyond the Fence" is a socially critical photographic documentary that is based on preliminary research and photographs from 2014-2017.
My work portrays the Ostend district of Frankfurt am Main. The district close to the centre is on the way from a formerly commercial and industrial workers'district to an attractive urban quarter due to enormous urban redevelopment measures. Since 2014 I have consciously observed this transformation and document the change with my photographs.
For me, the Ostend represents the growing social gap between rich and poor in the narrowest space.
So I meet winners and losers of this change process on my way through the quarter. I am particularly interested in the consequences of social change, people's stories and the impact on their habitat.
The serie is going to be exhibit on Tuesday 27.11. - 19:00 Uhr @ in der Hanauer Landstraße 121, 60314 Frankfurt am Main.
