I was a stranger…

‘I was a stranger’ is a university project about the recent refugee crisis in Europe. Before I started the series, I had many questions about the topic which I felt, could have only been answered if I am a witness to the events. Therefore, together with a few of my classmates we traveled to the Croatian-Hungarian border and the Austrian-Slovenian border, but no matter how much experience we gained or how closely we got acquainted with this crisis phenomenon, I only got more questions arose in me. I decided to use the obscurity, uneasiness and doubt in me as the source of the project, and I pieced together a photo-series based on keywords such as „mystery”, „surrealism”, and „strangeness”. My intention was to show the viewer the mood and the state of mind that I was in, during the shootings.
