“Dear Susanna, I’m very sorry”
For Die Zeit

In June 2018 I was assigned with documenting the aftermath of the murder and alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl by an asylum seeker in Wiesbaden, Germany. Together with the editors at Die Zeit and an amazing team of journalists in the field we made a conscious decision to keep a visual distance from the case and to refrain from photographing the young peers of the victim and the murderer. I spend last weekend revisiting the crime scene and other places connected to the crime trying to provide a calm and gentle view on the aftermath in a time of heated discussions about immigration and the hideous instrumentalisation of events like this by far-right organizations.

"I held my breath and drove through a maze of wealthy homes. I watched how green the trees were. I watched the steep walkways and the white fences. I gripped the wheel. I sweated against the leather. I watched the dogs twist through the wealthy garden. I watched you lay on a towel in grass that exceeded the height of your legs. I gazed into reflective eyes. I cried against an ocean of light.
Crippled by the cushion, I sank into sheets frozen by rose petal toes. My back shivered for your pressed granite nails. Dishonest and ugly through the space in my teeth. Break bones down to yellow and crush gums into blood. The hardest part for the weak was stroking your fingers with rings full of teeth ... It's 5 A.M ... and my heart flourishes at each passing moment.
Always and forever."

In July 2017 me and fellow photographer  and friend Sebastian Wolf spent a day in a studio to photograph some of the people that mean the most to us.
