PROJECT WENDEPUNKT, A PHOTODIARY
Between 18.06.2011 and 18.06.2012 I turned 30. Some people told me that turning thirty would be a rather special event, a kind of Wendepunkt in life. So I decided to register this event by photographing each day of that year, turning the website into a sort of digital monument. But shortly after the Wendepunkt I decided that ageing in general is more special than turning thirty. And because you never know what the real Wendepunkt in life will be, I decided to continue the project until the day I die.
