Within the past years the city of Leipzig has become a large scale urban project, continuously developing with the rapid movement of commercial and residential construction. The process of change is in the nature of cities, and identifying the true depth of these locations is often challenging. Considering this known scenario it is still possible to define the bigger perspective through studying specific locations within these evolving landscapes.
D-04179 Leipzig is a series of photographs documenting a combination of streets and buildings in a former working – class area, located on the West side of the city and where I attended an Art Residency for four months. In this place, it seemed like time has just stopped. Arriving newly from New York City, and now wandering through the empty streets in this unknown small town – I felt alone. The similarity of the buildings made me unsure if I was going the right way. I decided to map the region by photographing every block surrounding the residency up until the main road to the train.
