Black Lives Matter
Demonstration in Hamburg, Germany June 2020. The pictures were supposed to document that day 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 that day.

Looking back, I have been thinking a lot about that day. In the end it is about taking action and to point out how big of a problem racism still is.
