MALLORCAN


MALLORCAN

A collaboration project joined by Nicolaus Geyer, Marc Hillesheim and Hartmu Naegele in our second semester at Folkwang School in Essen.

The assignment brought us for one week to the most crowded tourist place on Mallorca. Against our expectation the whole area was transformed into a huge construction site. Crowds of elderly people, mostly widows, from all over Europe were planted among machines, still open cafes and compost, spending their winter holidays.

The book ” Mallorca , island in the sea of my dreams ” is our reaction on the surrealistic situation and marks an important change in my approach to photography. The text was written by Stephan Porombka.
