Photographer Antony Sojka’s current work ‘Tide’, part of his final studies at Ostkreuzschule for photography, is a photo-essay about people living in a unique place called Halligen. Halligen are ten very small, flat islands in the German North Sea, where sometimes two, sometimes 100 inhabitants live. Life is shaped by solitude and controlled by the tides, a special place, where the daily routine is different than anywhere else. To provide an insight into this special space and its inhabitants, Antony is traveling to Halligen for over one year now, always making new friendships and getting an understanding that Halligen could slowly disappear over time due to demographic problems. With his project he is raising money that will help him finish his project. If you want to support him visit his work on emphasis.is.
