Dreams of a Distant Place

As a boy growing up in the '70s-'80s behind the iron curtain of the cold war, in East Berlin, I would daydream of all the far away and mysterious places citizen of Eastern bloc countries were not allowed to visit.
This body of work is an attempt to reconstruct the visuals of my childhood daydreams when my mind started wandering, driven by a politically suppressed Wanderlust.

With my story I am trying to encourage curiosity for the unknown, embrace the mystery of foreign territories.
