This series of photos is part of a projekt which began more by chance a few years ago and which is still on-going. On trips to faraway countries such as Thailand, India, Gambia, Senegal and Morocco, animals have caught my eye again and again: neglected, maltreated, dead. Wretched creatures which are often to be found in such countries and which have a shocking effect especially in central European pet owners.
The photos are intended as metaphors, they are intended to serve as a screen for the thoughts and feelings of the observer. They make one ask oneself existential questions about life and death, about misery and compassion.
