I’ve always been interested in Europe and how this community of nations is developing. There are currently 28 member states and – from my austrian perspective – I can still see a lot of prejudice amongst them. I have to admit, some of the countries are still blank spots on the map for me too, but that is why I’m so interested in them. Whenever I travel to one of those places I see and photograph all the weird things that are different from home, but beneath the obvious, my conclusion is always the same: peoples everyday lives are not so different after all.
