Unquiet places

December 2012

Last year’s portfolio review at the “5. Triennale der Photographie Hamburg” was a fine day. You never know what to expect – each photographer who opens his folder with prints is a surprise package. And boy, was I lucky that day. Three great, inspiring photographers showed up: Amélie Losier, Stefan Koch and Soliman Lawrence.

In a way the work of Soliman Lawrence, documenting the renaissance of jewish culture in Poland being driven forward by non-jewish Poles, was especially interesting because it was so complicated to access and ambiguous. We invited Lawrence to talk about his project “Unquiet places” at Zeit Online (English with German subtitles).

In case you’re interested in the videos we produced together with Amélie Losier and Stefan Koch earlier in 2011: Wo Maradona groß wurde / Meine Quelle – Vom Ende eines Versandhausriesen
