Close to home

Inga, this one is just for us 🙂 A role model so to speak (although that certainly doesn´t mean that i want to throw myself into a warzone).
Christoph Bangert studiert Photography in Dortmund (!) and New York and seems to be currently cruising in a landrover somewhere in Africa and taking pictures for a new book. The last one Iraq: The space between is full of haunting (i feel hesitant to call them beautiful), stark und sometimes graphic images. A really well done book (as are the others on his website), but on a personal side, the idea that someone, who started at the same school we did, is doing such couragous and important (and crazy) work, is really humbling and motivating i think. So there is hope yet 😉
