Berlin / Warsaw / Moscow 2003 -2004
In 2003 I moved to Berlin, Warsaw and Moscow to explore the outskirts of big cities.
Instead of the so often seen cliché images of young people prepared to use violence
and social grievances, I looked for nuances in normality and everyday life.
I sat down with the history of cities apart and noticed that these suburbs of metropolises
are interfaces that can be described with pairs of opposites such as, city and country,
tradition and uprooting, nature and industry, hope and hopelessness.
For me they are “intermediate places” that are not clear.
