The past few weeks have been busy, here are the highlights. In late August ZEIT Online sent me out to interview and portrait voters in the northern city of Bremen about the SPD candidate for chancellor Martin Schulz, in September a short and very generous piece about my portraiture appeared in Communication Arts Magazine, and just a few days ago NPR published a wonderful story about Sophia, a German flirt coach, and Aktham, a Syrian refugee who enlists her help in finding a girlfriend. I really enjoyed working on the photography for this story.

My photo essay on Lesbos is included in the recently published book Beyond Survival, written by Jenny Schuckard and Kilian Kleinschmidt, published by Dumont Reisen. Jenny tenderly recorded the stories of twelve refugee children and teenagers, what they had to leave behind, and how they made their arduous journey to Germany. Kilian, who has long been hands-on involved in refugee work, provides the background information we need to understand what makes people leave. What’s unusual about this beautifully written book is that it's geared towards younger readers and their parents. A reading took place on Dec 19 at Grüner Salon in Berlin.
