The reasoning behind this arrangement of images, was experimenting haphazardly
with photo filters. By systematically using these tools, helped create these
interpretable variations.

your place – my place  metamorphoses of a place

The inspiration behind these metamorphoses, is a photograph of the Israelite
Cemetery Krumbach/Bavaria.
Tragically, but even fascinatingly so, is the dispersion and internationalisation
of the Jews. By collective associations, stereotypes, imaginary characteristics and
the effect of filters, I have tried to transfer this place into other countries.
