Normally one says: “Here was once a meadow, now there is a house.” Here it is reversed. The history and atmosphere of a shrinking region, as well as collective memories of the people living in the urban prairie, act back to the urban space through the collected portraits.
The series of photographs is accompanied by a photobook. Besides the photographs it contains fragments of interviews with people living in the region. The work was exhibited at Monat der Fotografie Off, European Month of Photography and TRAFO Weißwasser.
