Series 01: “My choice”: Shows my own perception of buildings in the district.
Series 02: „The choice of passers by”
For this series I asked passers-by in the streets of the district to to mark loactions on my city map which I then photographed. So I handed the selection of the motives over to them to show their perception of their living zone. If I assume that the choice of motifs influences the impression which the spectator gets of the neighborhood then the people involved have co-decided which visual information of their area is being transported. In addition, they have unknowingly contributed to my own selection of images because on my way to find their locations I discovered buildings myself which I then photographed for the second, comparative series of my own view of the district.
