„Whenever I think about getting sick, I feel fragile and my heart starts beating fast. It has always been like that. When COVID-19 rapidly spread around the globe in early 2020, I found myself waking up in a world that felt just as fragile.

Countries closed their borders. People were urged to shelter at home. Public life started to shut down and within a few days, ordinary life had become unthinkable. My own fear had turned into the fear of a whole society.

As a reaction, I started a road trip that took me 25.000 kilometers across Germany under strict precautions. During this unusual journey, I photographed on the frontlines and in the backyards of the evolving crisis in order to create a personal and comprehensive document of life during this historical period.

“About the days ahead” reflects on a changing society, oscillating between collective isolation, fear, despair, and the unconditional desire for improvised normality in unprecedented times.“
