• Jahrhundertflut Halle

    Due to heavy rains there were severe floodings in seven mid-European countries in the end of May and early June 2013. The following photographs document the dramatic development in Halle/Saale, where the river Saale peaked a level that hadn't been reached in 400 years.

    My reportage focuses on the actions at the renowned art school Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein, where students and teachers tried to prevent the worst after parts of the school had already been devastated by the equally dangerous and beautiful water masses.
