The photographer Doro Zinn explores the lives of four young individuals through essayistic portraits, photographed from summer 2016 to summer 2017 in Berlin. Leila, Ilhan, Mohammed and Coco grant the viewer a look into their lives, set between 60’s tower blocks in Neukölln, historic buildings in Kreuzberg and sport grounds in Moabit. A search for answers to their identity, being children of Muslim immigrants from Jordan, Turkey and Palestine. Four stories that each have their own way of dealing with the past and the future, with places of (imagined) existence, with what defines home and with growing-up.
Photos, essays, poems and songs written by them will be included in the book that will be self-published at the end of September.
