World Citizenship Photo-project.
2017
In this documentary photo-project I address the complexity of the concept of World Citizenship. What is the meaning of World Citizenship for international students of different universities in big cities of Europe, the new generation in charge on important positions?
The portraits, negatives on barite paper and made with a self-constructed analogue camera, are combined with the short texts of the student in which their meaning of World Citizenship is expressed. The viewer is able to turn the negative into a positive by a setting on his/her own mobile phone, to take a closer look, to start a connection.
The texts, in combination with the portraits, will open up discussions and create awareness in an interactive way.
The project will be realized in an exhibition and a photo book.
