For many people the wish for self-fulfillment is expressed in building their own home. With their conformist aesthetic appeal these new trends exert a particular appeal.
My series of photos features sections of new developments, in which the new residences are integrated into a strict orderly system. Window-less facades, in front of which strips of green, gravel beds, hedges, footpaths and roadways lie in layers like barriers, conveying an impression of living space, which seems to be reduced to a 2D surface and this to be flat, inhospitable, and unreachable.
