on the occasion of the current development in the usa and the murder of george floyd i publish on the recent page again a work of mine from the year 2016, which was created in southern chicago, which is inhabited mainly by African american people and as well as a work from 2012, photographed in the city of gary, which is about 20 miles away from chicago. the living conditions in these mainly black neighbourhoods are so radically different from the white regions in the town that i wondered when the spark would be ignited, when the moment would come when the gunpowder of racism and social injustice would explode. the photos in chicago were taken in 2016 with the help of my good friend jameel rafia, the photos in Gary/ Indiana in 2012.
