The Longest Night

2020 - 2021 



A photo-essay about the psychological difficulties during the second Corona Lockdown in Germany.
In collaboration with Maximilian Mann.


As the days became shorter, stricter measures were inevitable. The panic and fear of the first months and the relief during the summer now give way to isolation and loneliness. Life is once again shifting to the four walls of one‘s own home.

How do people endure such circumstances during this dark season? And how do people cope with having fewer social contacts?

Since November 2020, me and Maximilian Mann are photographing people who have been particularly affected by the restrictions. Personal stories that tell of emotional complexity and exceptional psychological situations. Conditions that are individual and at the same time collectively experienced.
