“Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
William Shakespeare, Macbeth
Nichts follows two characters. Throughout the series both characters are experiencing some type of decay and alienation. This series contains portraits, still lives, location shots and a combination of all of them. While one of the characters is losing her identity the other one is losing his mind. Nichts is not a pleasant photo series. It’s a project about loneliness and depression.
This project was created in collaboration with Joshua Kordon and Julia Starek.
Nichts depicts themes like decay, loneliness, identity, alienation and despair. This photo series should capture an atmosphere that reflects those concepts. This atmosphere is created through black and white photography; abandoned factories, streets and industrial areas; hard lighting; Make Up and an increasing dramaturgy.
