A corner of the new city, a reminder of valuable past in my hands.
Corona, quarantine and social distancing, masks, gloves and the feeling of belonging to a new city, interactions with the fellow-citizens, motivation to engage socially and do more. Those were some of the main motives behind organizing the photo contest and exhibition “Frankfurt through my lens”. Motivated migrants and refugees from Frankfurt, Offenbach and the neighbouring towns worked together and individually for one month and tried to capture their new surrounding during the pandemic times. While taking photos, the participants contemplated about the interrelations of photography, migration, sustainable development and the Corona pandemic.
We thank all participants and volunteers, who assisted the project and made it happen during these turbulent times. Special thanks to Parwiz Rahimi for constant support and sharing of photography theory and practise!
