Family Stories

The photographic examination 
"family stories" allows an intimate insight into the photo-grapher’s personal world, where, within generations of one family, different levels of time play an important role. Family represents a place where intimacy is retained, shared experiences are conveyed and identity is shaped. What role does the (post-) colonial gaze play for our viewing habits and what if the white gaze did not form the norm? The work speaks of identity, home and the sense of belonging of German Blacks in a white majority society.
