While studying at the picture editing class at the Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie, I realized this small and exquisit photo book.
"We see flat land of austere, melancholic beauty. But also a historical scene of European history. On both sides of the Oder they seem to have been erased, the traces of wars and expulsion, of forced resettlement and three Polish partitions. And yet these traces are inscribed in the landscape and the facades. This is what Ina Schoenenburg's pictures show. We see faces that tell of a promise of a common future. Whether we are on the left or on the right of the Oder, that is no longer a question. Because where borders were, where borders are, borders can also be overcome."
The work Związki was part of the joint exhibition "KONTINENT - In Search of Europe"
by Ostkreuz Agentur der Fotografen which opened during fall 2020 at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin.
