Black Lives Matter

Demonstration in Hamburg, Germany June 2020. The pictures were supposed to document the moment from an outside view. But as the demonstration progressed, the focus shifted towards the emotions of the individuals. Me as the photographer got really emotional on that day. Looking back, it was my way of approaching the subject I would say. How much does a person have to be involved in the topic to be able to create empathy? I had to think about this project quiet a lot and thought some questions through. In the end it is about the pictures and to point out how big of a problem racism still is.
