In the last three weeks my translator Maka and me met a lot of different georgian people to learn about their attitude towards Stalin. We had interesting interviews with them. One man took us to his yard high in the mountains of the north eastern part of Georgia, where he recently placed a six meter high statue of Stalin. It turned out that there is a very exciting story behind. Now it´s time to go back to Germany to develop the films and have a look at my pictures.
In March 2014 Stefan Fercho and I started our trip around the Baltic Sea. For three month we travelled by car through Poland, the Baltic States, Finland and Sweden. ABBAUGEBIET is the result of our work about the mining in Lapland which is a very serious topic for the people in the north. We spent time with reindeer herders, fishermen and other people who are affected by the mining. We document places where mining is planned as well as places where the mining takes place since many years.
