Last night the city of Munich and “Bellevue di Monaco” hosted a free concert on Königsplatz, Munich. As Dieter Reiter – Munich mayor – stated: the free concert is a unique happening to thank Munich citizens for their extraordinary help as refugees started arriving in Munich and also to welcome all refugees that made it here yet. Then Dieter Reiter himself opened the concert with the band “Dreiviertelblut” playing a song addressing all people filled with hatred against refugees and fear (such as Horst Seehofer): “mia san ned nua mia” [roughly translated: it’s not only us]
After that various bands and activists followed to adress people that gathered on Königsplatz – between bands a minute of silence was held to also remember every refugee that has died trying to flee to Europe. I found this minute of silence quite touching:
I am a young freelance photo- and videojournalist currently based in the Munich area. Also I am founder of the page 24mmjournalism - what started as a small project to make my pictures available for the public has by now become a team project.
My personal approach and declared goal is to document the fast-moving and always changing world around us. Protests and social movements are an often chosen way to display anger and mischief about conditions in our society. I try to deliver a wide-angle picture of those, confronting the viewer with the full width of the documented incident. 24mm of course also refers to my all favourite focal length and one of my best companions.
Do not hesitate to contact me so we can get in touch - either if you have criticism on my work or want to join the 24mmjorunalism team!
