Harry, the cosmonaut with hand tailored shoes

Marzahn-Hellersdorf, a socially disadvantaged district of Berlin, famous for its high crime and poverty rates and unkempt prefabricated buildings.

With this series I want to create a visual possibility to look at the district from a new perspective - far away from criticism of prefabricated buildings and crime statistics. I show Marzahn-Hellersdorf on the basis of handmade things in the district and looked for new image solutions - sometimes directly, sometimes in a roundabout way. In this way, I succeeded in representing the district anew on a fictional level.
