May Days is my first monograph. I have worked on this series of photographs in book form for the past three years. In 2014 and also the following year I taught photography at the Center for the Studies of Jose Marti, where I met Cuban friends who introduced me to attitudes, views, and life of the island. The series of photographs are a visual record of my time-- during the days of May--and encounters with people and places which seemed significant to me at this specific moment.
Although I grew up in the former East Germany, it was important to me not to see things through the filter of socialism and economic hardship - although only too apparent - but through social and human engagement that was serendipitous and open. I conceived the work in book format from the start and am excited to present it for publication in 2018.
